Overview

Since 1994, we've actively managed investments for clients with a focus on long-term results. The fundamental belief that investing can be both financially and socially rewarding is why responsible investing has been at the core of our business since the start.

We're responsible investors

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors4 are fully integrated into our investment activities, from company research to portfolio construction and our ongoing commitment to active ownership. 

  • The ESG data used in the investment process are based on ESG methodologies which rely in part on third party data, and in some cases are internally developed. They are subjective and may change over time. Despite several initiatives, the lack of harmonised definitions can make ESG criteria heterogeneous. As such, the different investment strategies that use ESG criteria and ESG reporting are difficult to compare with each other. Strategies that incorporate ESG criteria and those that incorporate sustainable development criteria may use ESG data that appear similar but which should be distinguished because their calculation method may be different.

With you every step of the way

We empower our clients by offering a range of strategies to suit different needs. This is backed by the latest investment insights from leading industry experts across markets and regions.
