We’ve searched the world over to find the best investment opportunities for our clients. In our search, we’ve identified companies that incorporate good Environmental, Social, and Governance practices in their operations.
Environmental, Social & Governance
Part of what makes a company a high calibre candidate for investment is their environmental, social, and governance initiatives. ESG is a component of our investment philosophy and process. For any company we consider investing in, we perform an analysis of their ESG practices, assign them an ESG score, and engage in discussions with their upper management and corporate social responsibility representatives.
Our 2023 Sustainability Report showcases how ESG considerations align with our long-term value approach. Read it here.
We Take Action
We don’t place all of the responsibility on the companies we invest in. We take action too. We are continuously researching new ESG developments, attend relevant seminars and events, and have ongoing dialogue with management teams and board members of our holdings.
