Bringing you the benefits of sustainable investing

As global investors, our investment universe has thousands of potential opportunities to choose from. So, to find the ones that meet clients’ demands for sustainable practices and good long-term performance, we use a three-stage process.

This process draws on the expertise of our fund managers and analysts. Using detailed analysis and sophisticated modelling techniques, we uncover investment opportunities across different regions and sectors.

Stage 1: Ethical screen

We exclude investments that are exposed to unethical practices, such as tobacco, oil, and weapons.

Stage 2: ESG screen

We only consider investments with positive Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) ratings and sustainability records.

Stage 3: Analysis and valuation

We assess investments to find the ones that we believe will deliver the best returns.
