ABS’ investment philosophy emphasizes finding the most talented asset managers around the world. Our focus on local and niche managers means that ABS is often a significant investor in the earliest stages of a manager’s track record. As a result, we are able to use our influence to engage with all potential and invested managers to encourage them to adopt an official ESG policy in the event that no policy already exists. Not only does ABS benefit by ensuring all of our managers are cognizant of ESG risks, but we are also able to positively influence the proliferation ESG consciousness across the broader investment management community.
