Our commitment to ESG
We focus on investing in businesses that are becoming better and ESG is a vital dimension in identifying positive change. We share views and preferences on ESG priorities using a consultative approach, rather than demanding specific actions.
Our proprietary ESG ratings framework incorporates both risk considerations and change catalysts associated with ESG-related issues.
ESG ratings, analytics, and proxy voting interfaces are directly integrated within our proprietary research dashboard.
Every sector team has developed sector-tailored engagement priorities framework, recognizing differences in materiality, risk considerations, key improvement, and sustainability drivers.
