Staying true to our core values

Investing responsibly

Our responsible investment approach is grounded in the belief that well-run companies - that effectively manage material social and environmental issues - are more likely to prosper over time.

Zeroing in on material risks and opportunities

We take a pragmatic approach to responsible investing that is tailored to local social and legal environments, and to the commercial imperatives of the companies in which we invest. As an active and engaged investor, we expect these companies to not only comply with the legal and regulatory regimes applicable to them but to also adopt ESG practices that contribute to long-term financial performance.

At the centre of our responsible investment philosophy is the belief that a high performing board of directors and good governance are the foundation to responsible business practices, providing leadership on setting corporate culture and ensuring ethical business behaviour.

Managing risk wisely

We are committed to minimizing risks and maximizing returns. To realize this objective, we have developed an integrated approach to managing the full spectrum of risks across our organization.
