Responsible Investing

Schroders Responsible Investment

Our responsible approach isn’t a new attempt to follow market trends, nor is it separate from our mainstream investment processes. Responsible principles drive the investment decisions of many of our strategies. We see ourselves as long-term stewards of our clients’ capital and this means looking beyond the numbers. From choosing the right assets to engaging with our investments, positive principles guide our actions. Jessica Ground, Global Head of Stewardship notes:

Responsible investment should be more than words in a policy and numbers in a business forecast.  

Schroders believes that companies have the ability to enhance their long-term performance through an understanding of the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues affecting their business. In an increasingly dynamic environment where legitimacy and credibility in the market place are important indicators of corporate performance, a thorough awareness of ESG issues enables companies to potentially mitigate risks and liabilities that could arise from these issues as well as realize opportunities.

Central to responsible investment is our belief that it is in our clients' best interests to consider a company's management of, and exposure to, ESG issues. Companies that combine good governance and corporate responsibility will tend to deliver long-term shareholder value over time.

We believe that our approach to responsible investment is in compliance with the UN Principles for Responsible Investment. Our approach to Responsible Investment is set out in our Responsible Investment Policies.
