2021 sustainability report

As a firm, we believe sustainable investing (SI) is shifting, and will continue to shift, capital markets. We aim to better serve our clients and lead our industry forward by incorporating sustainability into our investment approach and business operations.

Our approach to stewardship

Our investment-led approach is a key component of our engagement and escalation process. We vote proxies in ways we believe will maximise the economic value of our clients’ holdings long term, and we encourage companies to hold a high bar for ESG to enhance both their resiliency and profitability.
