Our values

Our holistic approach to environmental, social and governance (ESG) ensures that Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI assessment methodology available here) are embedded in our business practice.

Our Focus

Integration

Integrating ESG into our investment management process ensures that ESG risks and opportunities are not siloed, but recognised and acted upon throughout our business, as well as communicated to investors. 

Engagement

We engage regularly with our clients, occupiers, staff and community stakeholders to promote principles of responsible investment and to ensure alignment with best practice.

TRANSPARENCY

We have been a signatory of the UN-aligned Principles for Responsible Investment since 2014. We report our policy and practices publicly on the PRI website (transparency report available here), and document our ESG activities in our annual report.
