Acting responsibly for what matters to our people, our clients and the world we live in
Our purpose, to act for human progress by investing for what matters, is central to every action we take as a business. As a responsible investor, business and employer, we actively invest for the long-term so that our clients, our people and our communities can move forward. The combination of responsible, active and long-term defines our investment philosophy, but also how we run our business, what underpins our clients’ partnerships with us, and what drives our people.
We are a responsible investor
Our ambition is to be the world’s leading responsible investor. We have already seen signs that the global economy is starting to move to a more sustainable and equitable model over the next decade, and we will take an active role in powering that transition.
We are a responsible business
As a committed active investor we are led by our conviction. With fundamental research at the core of our process, our global team seek out and develop the most efficient and robust sources of performance across equities, fixed income, multi-asset, and alternative strategies. We know that with conviction, we advance and best serve the interests of our clients.
We are a responsible employer
Being responsible is in our DNA as a firm and is central to our ethos as an employer. It is embedded in how we grow and protect our people. It unites our team, from our leaders, to our growing number of specialists, to the newest members of our teams.
We are part of the AXA Group
Our heritage within AXA Group, a recognised innovator, has hard-wired our business for continual improvement. As our most demanding and challenging client, they help us to achieve excellence. Our relationship with our parent company also means protection and stability are part of our heritage.
