Responsible investing

Drive Positive Change

Today’s investment decisions shape tomorrow

Our vision in Responsible Investment

Together with our clients, asset managers can help create a more sustainable world.

We are creating responsible investment solutions to help our clients achieve their sustainability goals and fight against climate change.

The global shift towards sustainable investing means more opportunities.

We see a multi-decade investment opportunity where new technologies, business models, investment products, will facilitate both wealth creation and sustainable outcomes in the long term.

The net-zero transition will give rise to new, valuable asset classes.

Natural, human and social capital are the world’s most precious resources. We support their development into investible asset classes with the aim of directing capital towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

A sustainable world is fair and inclusive.

We are committed to helping our stakeholders prosper – our clients, shareholders, employees and the societies which we operate in, developing countries in particular. No one should be left behind in a just transition.

Engagement and stewardship are powerful tools of change.

We hope to offer the best to our future generations by promoting positive behaviour throughout invested companies and advocating for a more sustainable financial system in collaboration with the industry.

Our Responsible Investment Policy sets out our ambitions and our approach to responsible investment, how we implement our commitment to the UNPRI across our business, and describes how we meet the requirements of the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR). In addition, our Responsible Investment Implementation Procedures set out the approach we take to identify and respond to principal adverse sustainability impacts and how we consider ESG sustainability risks as these can adversely impact the securities our funds invest in.

Further detail on our approach and commitments is available in the 'Policies and Disclosure' section

Stewardship is a powerful tool for change. It plays an important role in enhancing investment returns as well as supporting sustainable objectives. We prioritise engagement over divestment in order to influence issuers and companies that we invest in.

We are committed to playing an active and constructive role in supporting the development of a well-functioning and more sustainable financial system. This includes engaging with regulators and policymakers directly and through our participation in industry bodies.

Risk warning
The value of investments and any income from them can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amount originally invested. The value of the underlying assets is strongly affected by interest rate fluctuations and by changes in the credit ratings of the underlying issuer of the assets.
