BMO Global Asset Management’s heritage and commitment to ESG investing runs deep. We take our responsibility seriously and that includes considering the impact of our investments on society and the environment.

Over 35+ years we’ve developed a range that includes specialist ESG products, investment strategies with ESG integration and engagement incorporated, and our Responsible Engagement Overlay service, reo®.

Our approach is an active one. We contribute to public policy development and engage with companies on ESG matters. And we express our views and perspectives through voting and thought leadership as well as working to ensure that ESG analysis is integrated across our broader investment processes.
