Responsible investment

Responsible investment makes business sense. For over 15 years now we've seen that our Fund generates strong financial returns by investing in companies that contribute to the long term sustainable success of the economy and society.

Our approach has been recognised internationally too – we've been recognised as a global leader on responsible investment by the United Nations Principles of Responsible Investment for the past 2 years running.

But with investment comes responsibility – responsibility for a wide range of environmental, social and governance issues, with none bigger and more urgent than climate change.
