Profit is only the beginning.
We look forward, so you know who to back.
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 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 seek to deliver both social value and maximize 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. We believe that a company's activities can present risks that may translate into financial costs. Identifying these risks and opportunities means we can seek to calculate their impact-adjusted profits and real potential profitability.
impactIQ is our set of tools that aims to 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 a company's operations, and enables us to help them transition towards a more sustainable, and therefore more profitable, business model.
