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.
