ESG Is All About Better Decision-Making

For us, ESG investing is the assessment of material environmental, social and governance issues during the investment process to complement traditional research like analyzing financial statements, industry trends, and company growth strategies.

These material ESG issues matter to a wide range of clients trying to improve their investment decision making – from those seeking to better manage risk to those investing for impact to those focused on driving long-term performance.
