Reflecting our commitment to best serving our fiduciary obligations to our clients and to incorporating ESG issues into our investment decision-making process, Barings LLC* is a signatory to the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment ("PRI") initiative.
At Barings, we believe that incorporating Environmental, Social and Governance into our analysis gives us a more holistic understanding of the complex issues, risks, and value drivers that may impact our clients' portfolios.
- ESG risks are assessed during the due diligence stage for new investments and monitored regularly once invested
- Investment teams have access to third-party resources that provide issuer-specific ESG data
- Our ESG working group meets regularly to discuss ESG trends across asset classes and how they may impact our clients
Above all, Barings’ goal is to deliver competitive risk-adjusted returns for our clients. We consider ESG-related issues an important part of this commitment, as these issues can impact an investment’s risks and returns over time.
