At SBI Funds Management Private Limited (SBIFMPL), our vision is to be a trusted and respected Asset Manager. Our mission is to be an ethical, responsive and innovative partner in investment solutions. As an asset manager, our fiduciary responsibilities towards our clients include long-term wealth creation and risk mitigation, and towards the community at large including matters of social, governance and environmental factors. At SBIFMPL, as part of our fiduciary responsibility, value system and risk management strategy, it is our core belief that a business, run in best interests of all stakeholders seldom fails to create a lasting value for its investors. This responsibility can be best served, not by trying to maximise short-term profitability, but by ensuring optimisation of long-term return and risks. Our belief is that a Responsible Investment (RI) approach is perhaps the best way to ensure longer term wealth creation for our clients. We expect the regulatory framework to evolve towards increasing transparency and increased efforts towards environmental sustainability. We expect many corporations to start reporting and go beyond their mandate to create positive value within the matrices of environment and society in which they operate. SBIFMPL actively encourages the integration of ESG criteria in the investment process.
