Environmental, Social and Governance

Our commitment to sustainability and responsible investment has never been greater. As a business we have always had a deep sense of doing what is right for our clients, and right for our communities. It is an important part of who we are and what we do.

In 2020, we initiated a Group-wide review, sponsored by our Board and managed by our Executive Committee, of how the Group addresses and responds to sustainability; both how we behave as a responsible business and how we provide our clients with responsible investment offerings.

As a result, we created the Sustainability Committee, the Sustainability team, and an ESG Investment Forum. Together, they created our Sustainability Framework to guide our strategic corporate decisions and help develop sustainable investments solutions whilst exhibiting good stewardship. All our initiatives and ambitions are about supporting and safeguarding our stakeholders’ interests, whilst ensuring we build a strong corporate foundation for a sustainable future.
