For wealth managers, such as ourselves, who are entrusted with the stewardship of our clients’ capital, it is important to ensure that ESG considerations are embedded within our responsible investment processes.
Engaged in stewardship
As responsible investors, we are engaged in the stewardship of the businesses we invest in on behalf of our clients. We use our influence as shareholders to improve investee companies’ own ESG practices and performance. We do this by engaging (directly and collaboratively) with companies where we have material shareholdings and by voting at shareholder meetings. As good stewards of our clients’ capital, we seek to encourage better business practices which will both enhance value and reduce potential risks as well as improving the impact of holding those investments on the both the environment and wider society.

The value of investments, and the income from them, may go down as well as up and investors may get back less than the amount originally invested.
Please note that some ethical funds may, by definition, have a limited investment universe; this may affect performance.
