Knowing what to do with insights is the key that unlocks value for you. Our investors and analysts globally have the knowledge and experience to do this for you.We seek to integrate ESG considerations into our research and overall investment decisions across investment desks and asset classes.
The majority of asset managers spend most of their time talking about their buying discipline rather than discussing the ownership process, and how they exercised their stewardship responsibilities. However, we believe that actions speak louder than words so rather than just talking about it, we show exactly how we exercise our stewardship responsibilities by sharing actual insights from our engagement and voting activity. These demonstrate how sustainability is embedded in the lifecycle of our investments.
Our 2016 Sustainable Investment Annual report re-enforces our commitment to integrating ESG into our investment processes across asset classes and holding companies to account for their ESG performance. We share our latest research on climate change and process safety, case studies on engagements that produce change and some that have failed, and a high level overview on voting and engagements. We are also providing clarity on ESG terminology and updates on policy changes. Finally, to highlight the end consumer interest in ESG, we discuss the ESG results from our Global Investor Study.
