Responsible investment

Responsible today for a better tomorrow

What is responsible investment?

Responsible Investment enables clients to align their investments with global megatrends that are changing the investment landscape such as increasing regulation, the growing need for risk mitigation and a heightened social conscience by integrating environmental, social and governance factors into the investment process.

An ongoing evolution

Responsible investing has changed tremendously and continues to evolve. Where before much of the focus was on avoiding companies deemed to be at odds with specific environmental, social or corporate governance factors, these days investing responsibly  runs the gamut from negative screening to integrated solutions  and all the way to impact investing.

Our philosophy and mission

At AXA Investment Managers, we believe Responsible Investment can deliver sustainable, long term value for clients and create a positive impact on society, which is why we incorporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into our investment solutions across all asset classes.

Our approach

From ESG to impact investing; negative screens to active stewardship of corporate governance, our offering spans the full ESG spectrum. This toolkit, combined with a flexible approach and our proprietary RI Search © tool means we are able to create tailored solutions to meet our clients’ goals whatever their required level of ESG integration.
