What is Responsible Investing?

Responsible Investing (RI) incorporates an analysis of a company’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance into the investment decision-making process. It enables fund managers to create investment portfolios that provide sustainable value and reduced risk.

The RI process

A fundamental step in creating RI funds is responsible screening. Companies involved in activities related to things such as tobacco, weapons and nuclear power are excluded; while companies that are leaders in key ESG areas are identified for inclusion. 

Active management

RI fund managers actively seek out and work with the best companies for our funds. Managers work directly with organizations through corporate engagement, dialogue, ESG-focused proxy voting, and other approaches to continually improve both their financial and sustainability outlook.
