Investing responsibly for what matters to 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 asset manager, we actively invest for the long-term to help our clients, our people and the world to prosper. 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.

As a specialist asset manager with a genuine long-term approach to investing, our role is to rise above the short-term noise and fluctuations in global financial markets. By actively investing in the companies and assets we believe in for the long-term, we reduce unnecessary turnover in our portfolios, seek to deliver consistent risk-adjusted returns and at the same time help progress the world in which we live.

Our impact can be greater. We can act for human progress by investing for what matters.”
