Oversight of responsible investment starts with our board of directors, which is responsible for setting the right tone for the business, supporting a strong culture and, through our senior leadership team, encouraging appropriate behaviours and collaboration across the business.

Day-to-day responsibility for responsible investment lies with the managing director (MD) of our investment business and is supported by the heads of our investment businesses.

Our clients, our regulators and our wider community rightly expect us to be responsible investors. Our ambition is not just to meet those expectations but to be a leader in responsible investing in our industry. Responsible investment forms one of our four pillars of being a responsible business – the others being our people, society and communities, and our environmental impact. You can read more about the work of our responsible business committee here.

The actions of our responsible investment committees are guided by the principles laid out in our responsible investment, engagement and voting policies.
