We take a responsible and sustainable approach to investing by applying environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria to more and more of our investment funds. That means we go beyond a company’s financials and look at how they contribute to sustainable development – based on these three criteria – before including them in the funds we offer our clients.
ESG criteria in action
We incorporate ESG factors into our investment process primarily through exclusion, reweighting, and active ownership (see below). We also offer thematic funds that invest in companies whose products and services are designed to actively contribute to sustainable development.
Two groups of socially responsible funds
We integrate ESG criteria into all of our discretionary management agreements and advisory services. We make sure our clients have access to the best solutions available through a combination of in-house and third-party ESG investment products.
ESG Impact funds
We invest in a range of thematic funds geared towards the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. These funds invest in companies whose products and services are designed to tackle sustainability issues.
