We focus on optimizing investment returns within the risk tolerance constraints as set forth by our clients’ investment objectives. Our investment strategies are rooted in rigorous research and executed through disciplined investment and risk management processes.
We believe that over the long-term companies with sustainable business practices and a strong attention to environmental, social, and corporate governance are likely to have less risk and perform better financially than those companies that do not. This will lead to long-term value creation and benefit the environment and society as a whole.
We believe that over the long-term companies with unsustainable business practices and poor corporate governance are likely to be subject to greater risks and higher cost of capital and, as a result, are likely to be less attractive long-term investments.
Therefore, incorporating ESG factors overall aligns with our fiduciary responsibilities as asset managers.
