Our Responsible Investing Framework
Responsible investing is a spectrum—and there are no universally accepted classifications. Our intention is to always promote consistent, comparable, and reliable information for investors. The spectrum, like our framework, will continue to evolve to reflect new solutions and innovations that enter the investment industry. To provide clarity and insight on how we view responsible investing, we have classified the current investment approaches available across the industry into the categories below.
We are a signatory to the PRI as an asset manager, and as such we are bound to the six core principles for responsible investment:
Incorporate ESG factors into our investment analysis and decision-making processes.
Be active owners and incorporate ESG issues into our ownership policies and practices.
Seek appropriate disclosure on ESG issues from the sub-advisors as well as corporations in which we invest.
Promote acceptance and implementation of the Principles across the industry.
Work together to enhance our effectiveness in implementing the Principles.
Report on our activities and progress towards implementing the Principles.
Our approach to responsible investing
As a manager of managers, we believe that ESG considerations need to be integrated into each individual investment process to effectively support overall value generation and risk management.
