Our Thinking

Insight is the engine of responsible investment, fuelled by research to ultimately drive positive change in society and the world around us.

We use our investor voice to influence not just companies but governments and regulators too, to establish appropriate policies on environmental, social and governance issues.

Our responsible investment team publish insightful research on a wide range of topics and share insights on issues from plastic in the oceans to living wages for developing nations. We can help build an understanding of these challenges and the ways that responsible investment is providing solutions to them.
