With this in mind, we believe it’s in the best interests of our clients that the companies and securities we invest in adopt best practice in managing those environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks that present a risk to the long-term interests of shareholders.
By addressing ESG issues, a responsible investment approach not only serves to protect the planet and people. It also preserves wealth and generates returns via enhanced risk management and the identification of promising investment opportunities. With responsible investment, building a sustainable future and creating value go hand in hand.
WHAT IS RESPONSIBLE INVESTMENT?
Responsible investment means considering environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues, when making investment choices and taking decisions as a shareholder.

Responsible Investment in Two Minutes
Our video on responsible investment outlines the challenges facing people and planet and how these can affect the value of investments. The animation also explains how we approach responsible investment.
We set out our four principles that help us address these problems, identify the opportunities and show the action we’re taking: ESG integration, engagement with consequences, voting with purpose and transparency.
