Sustainable investing - the opportunity of integrity

You don’t need to choose between your investment performance and your beliefs. Our sustainable investment strategies have two aims: to provide attractive risk-adjusted returns, while maintaining our respect for the inherent value of every human being, and our responsibility to safeguard our planet.


Our vision is simple: we embrace the good while limiting the bad

Our investment strategies are aligned to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), offering exposure to companies that are best positioned to take advantage of the upside the implementation of these goals, in most economies, might bring.

Equally, we limit investment in companies that go against the vision of a sustainable future, so avoiding many risks associated with poor governance, ecological risks (including the risk of stranded assets), reputational risks, sanctions, or fines.

We believe that change leads to opportunity, and have adopted a thematic overlay to tap into the possibilities that technological change, habitual change, demographic change and environmental change bring.

Our sustainable investing approach addresses sustainability issues and reflects our solid investment principles.


Harnessing the opportunity of our future needs

Embracing the good

We pursue opportunities that allow us to invest in a sustainable future. Aligning to the UN SDGs creates investment opportunities with a foundation for improving equality, ending poverty, and protecting the environment.

Limiting the bad

Some investment products and services have impacts that undermine the aims of the UN SDGs. We avoid investing in companies whose activities limit the potential of a sustainable future.

  • We use a screening process called Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) criteria to exclude companies that profit from the following:

    • Alcohol  • Civilian firearms  • Gambling  • Weapons  • Cluster bombs  • Landmines  • GMOs  • Tobacco  • Fossil fuels


Measuring our portfolio footprint

Our investment strategies aim to deliver superior risk-adjusted returns while considering the impact investments have on the environment and society. In order to gauge the strategy’s footprint, two measurements are built into the investment mandate.

  • To have a net positive alignment to the UN SDGs

    The strategy will be measured against the UN’s 17 SDGs in order to illustrate the positive footprint.

  • Maximum exposure of 2% to SRI exclusion criteria

    The percentage of the portfolio’s market value exposed to companies flagged for one or more SRI exclusion factor is restricted to 2%.

  • A transparent approach, brimming with opportunity

    No single solution can solve our future social and environmental challenges. However, considering environmental, social and governance factors in long-term financial planning is not only sensible, it could offer substantial opportunity, as the level of investment needed to meet various government commitments points towards growth in this industry.


We believe that change leads to opportunities


We use a thematic overlay so that portfolios can benefit from long-term global trends, as well as broader sustainable goals.

This introduces exposure to trends and is achieved by investing some of the portfolio into specific investments that target these themes and trends.

An example of this is the global trend towards demographic change, with an aging population, lower birth rates, and an expanding middle class. This has created investment opportunities in sectors such as care homes, healthcare, education, fintech and student accommodation.

On the environmental front, if we are to come close to achieving government targets, the level of investment needed is akin to that of the industrial revolution. No investor would want to miss out on that.

Other trends include habitual change and technological change, representing a wide range of opportunities such as music licensing, cyber security, and robotics.
