Further we believe companies that best manage ESG risks are more likely to be financially sustainable in the long run.
For example, if a company isn’t taking into account pollution risks (E), underpays its workers (S), or has weak oversight of key business functions (G), then it will likely experience adverse consequences at some point, which in turn will negatively impact its operations, financial performance and share price.
This is why we carefully consider ESG factors when selecting individual investments for our clients’ portfolios.
We also believe voting on resolutions for the companies we invest in and actively engaging with companies provides an opportunity to enhance and protect the long-term value of clients’ portfolios.
