Responsible investing is part of our core beliefs. Sustainable and responsible investment practices are a material factor underpinning investment outcomes for our clients, and also therefore our long-term success as a business.
We acknowledge that we are in a privileged position to act as fiduciary to our clients and stakeholders. We consider environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks to be relevant to the long-term performance of all the investments we make and hold - across all asset classes, sectors, markets and through time.
As a part of our parent company, Momentum Metropolitan Holdings, we are a signatory to the United Nations defined Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) since 2006, which consists of an international network of investors working together to ensure that the 6 Principles for Responsible Investment are implemented in practice.
We participate in market-related industry forums as a member of the Investment Association, and also as a member of the Investment Consultants Sustainability Working Group (ICSWG).
