We believe we have a responsibility, where possible, to use our investments to promote sustainable economic development. We have a Responsible Investment Policy, which sets out how we incorporate social, environmental and corporate governance factors into decisions about where, when and how we invest, across all the assets we manage.
We also use 'impact investing' that we believe not only delivers sound financial returns, but also a real social or environmental benefit.
In addition, we offer a range of socially responsibly investment funds to our clients in selected markets. These funds allow customers to exclude certain categories of investments, track a sustainability index or in some cases directly invest in a fund that addresses climate change.
