We are our clients’ chosen investment partner entrusted as active stewards of their capital. Our clients trust us to safeguard their capital as if it were our own. It is our fiduciary duty to act in their best interests. We believe incorporating material environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into our investment decisions enhances our investment framework including financial analysis, qualitative assessments, valuations, modelling and engagement with investee companies.
We recognise that ESG factors are relevant to the long-term health and stability of capital markets and issuers of securities and that long-term sustainable returns are dependent on stable, well-functioning and well governed social, economic and environmental systems. Material ESG factors are considered alongside economic, financial and operational factors of an investment case, and can and do influence our conviction. As such, material ESG factors are integrated into our investment processes and are a major driver of our understanding of risk and reward.
By incorporating material ESG factors and recognising the importance of wider contextual factors, such as the stability and health of economic and environmental systems as well as the evolving values and expectations of the societies of which we are a part, we aim to build more robust portfolios for our clients”.
