Our vision in Responsible Investment
Together with our clients, asset managers can help create a more sustainable world.
As trusted guardians, we allocate capital and engage with holdings to encourage sustainable behaviour, helping 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, alongside ESG integration, 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.
Sustainable investing is embedded into our fiduciary duty.
We invest with purpose and discipline. Our approach incorporates valuation and materiality frameworks, constantly striving to improve risk-adjusted returns whilst integrating sustainability across the platform.
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.

Responsible Investment Policy
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 Disclosures’ section
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.
