Social and environmental change is happening faster than ever. Climate change, shifting demographics and the technology revolution are reshaping our planet. Those companies that can adapt and thrive will be more successful in attracting customers, employees and growing their business.
A forward-looking, active investment approach is needed to comprehend the impact of these forces. This means understanding how a company interacts with society and its environment as well as analysing its profit lines. It means having a team of investment professionals who can apply experience and knowledge to specific situations and help manage the risks. Today, investors want returns but they also want their investments to provide better outcomes for society as a whole.

We integrate our sustainability research into the way we invest across asset classes and geographies. We don’t stop at equities, but use our insights to inform decisions in other areas including fixed income and real estate. It’s integral to everything we do.
Past performance is not a guide to future performance and may not be repeated. The value of investments and the income from them may go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amounts originally invested. Exchange rate changes may cause the value of any overseas investments to rise or fall.
