We believe strong governance practices and management of environmental and social risks are important drivers of investment value over the short and the long term. We also believe that delivering sustainable investment returns is dependent on efficient and well-managed financial markets, and stable and transparent social, environmental and economic systems.
Our objective is to achieve superior investment returns over clients' expected time horizons. We consider responsible investment to contribute towards this goal through providing investment solutions that deliver quality and excellence; managing financial and nonfinancial risks for our clients; and operating to high ethical and professional standards.
We consider responsible investment as central to our investment activities, to our culture, to our relationship with clients and to our interaction with stakeholders.
To deliver on our objectives, we:
1. Take account of financially material short and long-term risk factors in our investment research and decision-making processes. These risk factors may include environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.
2. Exercise our stewardship role in the companies and other entities in which we invest. We believe that good stewardship can create investment opportunities and reduce investment risk. We therefore engage with management to discuss issues such as strategy, deployment of capital, performance, remuneration, risk management and ESG factors. We also vote our shareholdings.
3. Support efforts that seek to improve the operation, resilience and stability of financial markets. This includes sustainable economic development and health of the natural environment.
