We believe companies cannot achieve sustainable economic success while neglecting their environmental responsibilities. All ESG issues form an intrinsic part of any investment case. All ESG factors play an important role in assessing the long-term sustainability and value of investments. We believe that the integration of these factors into our investment process is a crucial component and will ultimately lead to increased value and lower risk for client portfolios. We therefore fully integrate all ESG factors into our investment processes, stewardship practices and into the management of our own company in a manner which we believe is aligned with our investment strategy, our values, the interests of our clients and stakeholders. We aim to generate positive returns.
