MIM’s specialised, independent investment teams are focused on delivering long-term, consistent results for clients. Each team has autonomy to execute on its own investment philosophy. All of MIM’s teams share several traits: independent thinking, global perspectives and conviction in their specialised investment philosophies. The teams also recognise that ESG factors may provide additional insight into investment risk and that positive ESG performance may be a potential indicator of management quality, operational performance and the potential to create long-term value. Each team differs in the extent of their coverage and review of these factors, with some teams systematically reviewing ESG factors as part of their investment process, while some others review these factors on an ad-hoc basis.
