ESG is a mindset,
not an asset class

ESG is a mindset,
not an asset class

That’s Responsible Investing


Financial returns matter, but so does the impact our investments have on society and the environment. It’s no longer acceptable to invest in businesses for profit alone, when those with poor practices can have such a profoundly negative impact on the world around us. Quite simply, the decisions we take today define the future for us all.

It’s our core belief that ESG principles enhance and improve both investment returns and real-world outcomes. With a rising tide of people wanting their money to do good, we as both investors and stewards of capital, need to take full responsibility for the change.

As a global asset manager with £227.1bn AUM1, we have a responsibility not just to invest in a more sustainable future, but also to use our influence to drive positive change. Responsible investing is therefore at our core, informing everything we do from portfolio construction to company engagement. That’s Responsible Investing.
