We want to keep you updated about what we are doing within BMO Global Asset Management to address COVID-19.

We are committed to being here for you through this turbulent time

First and foremost, I want to assure you that our priority is protecting the health and wellbeing of our clients, our employees and their families across all the regions and markets in which we operate.

As COVID-19 took hold we swiftly implemented contingency plans to safeguard our employees, continue serving customers and keep operations running effectively in compliance with our regulatory obligations. These plans are being constantly reviewed in light of the latest regional medical advice and government guidance, and we continue to work closely with our colleagues across BMO Financial Group to be fully equipped to deal with developments in the current situation. I am running regular meetings with my executive management team to stay on top of and  react to the situation in all our geographies as it evolves.

We implemented working from home options for all roles that could be performed remotely.  This includes our Portfolio Managers and analysts in all our locations, and we have worked with our technology team so that they are able to perform their roles just as effectively as they could in the office. Having stopped all non-essential business travel, we continue to use technology-enabled alternatives to face-to-face meetings both internally and with our clients.

We will continue to monitor developments in this global pandemic and take necessary action.

If there is anything that affects our ability to provide you with the service that you should expect, we will contact you promptly. Please do not hesitate to contact me or one of my team if we can do anything to help.

Under the hood – ESG integration across asset classes

Responsible investing (RI) has evolved tremendously over the past decade, moving beyond a stylish trend to represent a material structural change. Institutional investors worldwide are making more thoughtful decisions about capital allocation and investment managers have responded by adopting environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices into their fundamental processes. What does this integration look like across the various asset classes? In this issue of IQ, we’ve conducted a roundtable discussion where portfolio managers and representatives from BMO Global Asset Management’s full suite of strategies share their perspective: Jennifer So, Fundamental Canadian Equities; David Corris, Disciplined Equity; Adam Phillips, U.S. Fixed Income; and Angus Henderson, BMO Real Estate Partners.
