Responsible Investment Leaders

We believe that responsible investment is a mindset: as asset managers, we have a privileged and trusted position as stewards of capital, which gives us both influence and responsibility.

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 30+ 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®.

  • Thought leadership – promoting and encouraging the development of responsible investment across the broader marketplace and industries
  • Leaders in active ownership – using our position as an asset owner to drive positive change through engagement and proxy voting
  • Leaders in integration – ensuring financially material ESG issues are considered within our active investment processes
  • Leaders in products – offering a range of ESG oriented investment solutions built around a clear sustainability philosophy
