Differentiated Solutions

ESG investing helps inform better decision making – that’s why we design our ESG solutions to make those decisions easier for clients. Utilizing industry-leading data providers, the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB)’s materiality framework and our own investment expertise, our solutions are designed to meet client ESG goals.


Approaches


We have more than 40 years of indexing experience and deep expertise managing values-based, climate-based and international regulations and norms-based exclusionary investments.

We construct portfolios with a risk management approach based on client objectives, including excluding certain companies, sectors or countries.


We invest in companies, sectors and countries selected for superior ESG performance relative to peers.

With new ESG indexes in partnership with Bloomberg and SASB powered by R-Factor, we seek to improve financial outcomes by incorporating ESG data into the research and security-selection processes.


Our suite of thematic products seek to help investors benefit from broad macro-level ESG trends.

By aligning portfolio construction with companies mitigating and adapting to the effects of climate change or by employing the highest levels of gender diverse leaders within their sectors, we help investors build more climate-resilient and gender diverse portfolios.


We view the consideration of financially material ESG issues in the investment process as part of our fiduciary duty to clients. Our investment teams each assess if and how financially material ESG issues are integrated into their decision-making processes.

We are committed to full ESG integration and continue to evolve our investment processes as ESG tools, metrics and corporate standards advance.
