We believe that acting as a responsible corporate citizen is fundamental to our sustainable, long-term success.
At Schroders, our values of excellence, innovation, teamwork, passion and integrity provide the framework within which we operate, and support our approach to doing the right thing for our clients. These values define our reputation, determine the behaviours we expect of our employees and are integral to everything that we do.
As a global firm and one of Europe’s largest asset managers, we recognise that we deliver value to society by encouraging businesses to act responsibly. For further details, please see Responsible Investment.
Our people are our most important asset. Recruiting, retaining and developing this talent enables us to fulfil our potential as an organisation. We value and promote a culture of diversity and inclusion, harnessing the strengths and differing points of view of individuals to surface ideas and insights. Find out more about working at Schroders
We support the communities in which we operate and encourage our employees to do the same. We have a continued focus on employee-led charitable giving and encourage payroll giving, as well as supporting employee fundraising efforts through matching. Employees in many of our offices can also take paid volunteering leave and apply for time matching for any volunteering they take part in outside of working hours.
We are committed to minimising the environmental impacts of our operations and to delivering continuous improvement in our environmental performance. Further information on our activities in this area can be found in the annual CR Report.
Our economic impact
At Schroders we are committed to conducting our tax affairs in an open and transparent way. Our global tax footprint is driven by a number of factors including the locations of our people and our clients and corporate tax rates and rules in these locations vary significantly. We apply a consistent global approach to allocate profit to the territories in which it is earned, in line with OECD principles.
