For Professional Clients and/or Qualified Investors only
By integrating sustainability into their business strategies and decision-making processes, financial institutions can go above and beyond their critical role as providers of capital for people and businesses – they can play a significant role in promoting activities that support goals such as financial inclusion, environmental stewardship and respect for human rights. Importantly, financial institutions have a significant role to play in accelerating the transition to a low carbon economy.
We will, therefore, aim to invest in financial institutions that see strong sustainability and governance practices as essential to effectively managing ESG risks and opportunities, maintaining their social license to operate and, ultimately, creating long-term shared value.
The value of investments and any income derived from them can go down as well as up as a result of market or currency movements and investors may not get back the original amount invested.
Investing in emerging markets is generally considered to involve more risk than developed markets.
