ESG Philosophy

Deep consideration of governance, social as well as environmental issues – coupled with active ownership – enhances investment, business and community outcomes.

Beliefs aligned with our investment philosophy:

A Long-Term Perspective

  • We only pay for what’s environmentally & socially sustainable
  • Practices counter to the spirit of the law are unsustainable
  • Practices which exploit vulnerable groups are unsustainable

Independent Thinking

  • Personal and societal values can shape research insights
  • ESG considerations require dedicated and specialist capability

A Culture of Ownership

  • Our success requires strong management of ESG issues
