We believe every investor should have the choice to invest in environmental sustainability. Our sustainable investing strategies take a responsible approach by balancing the need for a robust investment return with environmental and social responsibility objectives, along with sound governance. Through a rigorous screening process, investors have the benefit of a greener, more socially responsible investment portfolio. We can prove that it is possible to do well by doing good.
Environmentally Responsible Investing (ERI)
It’s now possible to build a diversified investment portfolio that eliminates companies with fossil fuel reserves and significantly reduces current emissions. We also focus on responsible land use and environmental waste, and toxic spills. When combined, these factors significantly reduce exposure to companies with poor environmental records and reliance on fossil fuels.
Socially Responsible Investing (SRI)
Most people are unaware that their portfolio holds stocks that manufacture weapons of war and hand-guns, use child labour or produce pornography. Given the chance, many investors will take the opportunity to eliminate these companies from their portfolio. The good news is that it is now possible through our socially responsible screens.
Research suggests that the best run companies also provide the best investment returns, so a focus on responsible, well run companies that align community and shareholder expectations become more attractive investments.
