We believe that by managing sustainability risks and opportunities, we’ll be better able to deliver resilient and stable returns over the long term.

As an asset manager, we have a role to play in driving long-term value creation by supporting resilient business models and promoting stability in the systems we rely upon – while balancing the current and future needs of our clients.

We recognise that a company’s ability and willingness to address how it impacts, and is impacted by, sustainability issues, can have an important influence on its long-term financial performance. We also understand the effects – both positive and negative – that our investment decisions can have, in a highly interconnected world, on people, society, and the environment.

With this in mind, sustainability and stewardship considerations form a part of our holistic investment decision-making process.

By paying attention to sustainability factors relevant to long-term economic performance, and by stewarding the assets entrusted to us responsibly, we aim to support our clients’ financial ambitions – both now and into the future.
