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.
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.
