ESG in Equities

Seeking Superior Risk-Adjusted Returns and Better ESG Practices

At Barings, we strongly believe in integrating ESG factors into fundamental, bottom-up investment analysis and decision-making, taking a dynamic and forward-looking approach to analyzing a company’s ESG practices and actively engaging with management teams to improve ESG outcomes.

Further details can be found within our policy and stewardship documents:


We believe integrating ESG allows us to better assess risks and opportunities for our investments that may not be apparent in traditional fundamental analysis.


We monitor investments for improvement or deterioration in their ESG standards to highlight and reward more sustainable business practices.


We believe in driving outcomes through direct engagement with corporate management teams, rather than relying solely on exclusions.
