At WellsCap we understand that ESG issues are important considerations among many that should be incorporated by our investment teams within their evaluation and decision-making processes. We believe that ESG issues can have an impact on investment performance and have financial consequences; likewise, we believe that a better understanding of ESG risk factors can help protect against downside risk and contribute to long term risk-adjusted returns.
