Investors are increasingly considering how environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues affect their investments, and how their investments can drive a positive impact. 

We’re proud to be a PRI Signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI), and we aspire to implement the six principles for responsible investment as we carry out our fiduciary duty for clients. 

We approach sustainable investing through three distinct lenses: 

Sustainability in manager research

For more than three decades, manager research has been the foundation of our investment management philosophy, and today, it underpins our sustainable investing capabilities.

Our approach to ESG research provides an in-depth analysis of each of our managers based on three broad sets of factors: profile, resources, and practices.

Sustainable investing solutions

We aim to bring dedicated sustainable investing solutions to our clients through mutual funds and customized solutions. 

We have a 20-year track record providing custom screening solutions to clients through separate accounts, enabling them to align their portfolios with their values by excluding investments in certain sectors or business practices. 

Today, we manage multiple values-aligned funds, and our manager research team has identified opportunities for clients focused on ESG integration and thematic and impact investing.

Investment stewardship

We use our voice—and our vote—to influence organizations to act in the best interests of our clients, including considering ESG issues in shareholder engagement and proxy voting. 

By participating in collaborative engagement activities in partnership with other asset managers and asset owners, we aim to amplify our own voice as a shareholder. Our engagement activity focuses on global norms and standards, as well as sustainability themes shaping the future of the global economy.
