We use ESG analysis to shape and enhance the investment process.
In select strategies, we seek to deliver direct, measurable and positive effects on society and/or the environment.
We engage with corporate management to promote sustainable decision making.
The ACT range is focused ESG offering. Strategies in this category are designed to help target specific sustainability goals around issues such as climate change and inequality while continuing to adopt the reinforced approach to sustainability risks and good governance practices as described above.
Alongside financial returns, these strategies target positive outcomes related to ESG criteria and/or to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs)2 . Investment decisions are guided by both the financial and impact goals.
Within this range are two categories:
Sustainable strategies aim to embed ESG into the portfolio construction process, in an material and intentional manner.
Listed Impact strategies incorporate the demands of our responsible investment categories but will seek out businesses and projects that can potentially have an intentional, positive, measurable and sustainable impact on society and/or the environment. These strategies will also report against impact criteria aligned to specific UN SDGs2 .
No assurance can be given that our strategies will be successful. Investors can lose some or all of their capital invested. Our strategies are subject to risks including, but not limited to: global investments risk, equity risk, credit risk, derivatives risk and leverage, risks linked to investments in emerging markets, counterparty risk and geopolitical risk.
