Profit is only the beginning. When we invest, we should expect more than financial returns.
See why it pays to look further.
We believe sustainability is about making a positive impact with everything we do, from how we act as a corporate to the investments we make on behalf of our clients.
We all have the power to help create a sustainable and more prosperous world for all through our role in the financial system by allocating capital to areas that deliver both social and investment value.
Sustainable investing looks not only at what profits a company generates but how it generates them. This involves a fundamental shift in how companies are viewed and valued. A company's activities are risks that can translate into financial costs. Identifying these risks means we can calculate their impact-adjusted profits and real investment potential.
Your capital is at risk with investing.
impactIQ is our set of tools that measure the impact that companies have on society and the environment. They examine the externalities of companies, the risks that unsustainable practices pose to their business, as well as their overall alignment with the UN SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).
Active ownership is a core part of sustainable investing. An ongoing dialogue with company leadership provides us with an extra dimension of understanding of a company's operations, and enables us to help them transition towards a more sustainable business model.
