Investing in Lasting Change, Together

The best way to effect positive change is to actively drive it.

Sustainability has a place in every aspect of our organization, and we have taken concrete steps to formally integrate ESG into our investment strategies. In addition to giving us a more holistic understanding of complex risks and value drivers, our focus on ESG allows us to reward progress, seek better value for our clients, and drive positive change in our business, communities and world.

INCENTIVIZING PROGRESS

We seek to advance change by rewarding progress, and working with companies to develop more sustainable business models.

CONSISTENT FRAMEWORK

Our robust, repeatable framework for integrating ESG is ingrained in our bottom-up approach and tailored by asset class.

ENGAGEMENT

We engage with companies and look for ways to improve their ESG credentials, rather than relying solely on exclusion.
