We actively invest for the long-term prosperity of our clients and to secure a sustainable future for the planet.
Our ambition is to be the world’s leading responsible investor.
When we invest, it is to deliver long-term sustainable performance for our clients, but we recognise that every action we take has a consequence. We are committed to ensuring that we uphold the same high standards that we expect to see in others as a fiduciary, as an employer and as a partner.
We know that we can make a real difference, and this aligns our actions with the values of our clients.

Stewardship and engagement
We believe that the proper consideration of relevant environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters affects the long-term sustainable performance of companies and benefits the investors of such companies.
Environmental, social and governance
RI enables clients to align their investments with global megatrends that are changing the investment landscape. Issues such as increasing regulation, the growing need for risk mitigation and a heightened social conscience can be more effectively addressed by integrating ESG factors into the investment process.
Impact is a type of sustainable investing, a way of making investment decisions which aim to deliver positive financial returns and a benefit to society at the same time.
We are firmly committed to embedding RI into our business practices and culture.
