  • Responsible investment and stewardship

    We aspire to be a global leader in Responsible Investment (RI) and Stewardship. To achieve this we continually strive to create both a culture of long-term stewardship and, to improve our understanding of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors as sources of long term risk and return. We believe that excellence in RI, operating to the highest standards of professional ethics and our commitment to our stewardship principles delivers better long term investment outcomes for our clients. 

    Our RI strategy is based upon three strategic pillars of Quality, Stewardship and Engagement. This strategy is underpinned by a strong governance framework and is supported by our specialist RI team. Each year we publish a responsible investment and stewardship report which outlines our progress in these areas and profiles each of our investment team’s approaches to responsible investment. We also include over 30 case studies of responsible investment in practice.

    We believe it is important that we share with our clients and the industry our approach to RI and stewardship, in particular how we address the many and varied challenges we face in this area. While we recognise we can improve further, we hope it will lead to greater engagement with clients and other stakeholders and contribute to the industry’s efforts to improve standards of RI and Stewardship practice. 

    The report includes information on:

    Our approach

    Our progress against our strategy

    Investment team profiles 

    Investment characteristics and performance, including improved climate risk disclosure

    Case studies including videos
