Our investment approach
Our commitment to ESG
Our approach to ESG considerations is informed by our active avoidance of unresolved or anticipated major controversies from a risk management perspective. Our focus on high growth has naturally led to strategies with generally low fossil fuel involvement and “low-carbon” designations.
Active surveillance of ESG risks and ratings trends is incorporated into our investment process.
MSCI ESG analytics are imbedded in the team’s toolkit and analysts document key ESG considerations on new buy recommendations.
We focus on understanding the perspectives of other engagers (Wall Street, industry experts, ISS, etc.) and benefit from memberships with ESG supporting organizations.

ESG integration is considered across all actively managed asset classes, with the approach determined by each investment group’s process.
