We view our approach to ESG as a journey that is guided by the needs of our clients, over four decades of active investing expertise and a team of highly experienced investment managers.
We recognize that there are numerous ways to incorporate material environmental, social and governance issues into the investment process. We provide our investment teams with the flexibility to adopt those that best suit the strategies they manage and that allow them to generate attractive returns for our clients.
At the same time, we promote a set of shared principles to guide our collective ESG effort:
