ESG in Investing

Our ESG Investment Philosophy

Because we’re committed to creating a sustainable tomorrow, we’re deeply aware that the investment decisions we make today will resonate far into the future—for our clients, communities and planet.

That’s why we’ve taken concrete steps to formally integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) information into our investment analysis. We’re continually looking at ways to engage companies to improve their ESG credentials and develop more sustainable business models.

Our ingrained fundamental approach enables the systematic analysis of ESG topics through our interactions and engagements. This insight provides us with a dynamic picture of risks and opportunities, reflected by our firm-wide ESG scoring system.

We’re building a better future, as we invest in lasting change together.
