Sustainable Investing

Sustainability – Integrated Approach

An integrated approach ensures that an assessment of a company’s ESG practices occurs at every stage of our research process, including qualitative analysis, management interviews and ultimately our valuation work and buy/sell discussions.

We believe that corporate sustainability is directly related to a firm’s ability to deliver long-term growth in profit.

Sustainability – Engagement

Primary engagement with entities is via ongoing meetings and communications with managements/boards where we strive to share our views as investors and gain a better understanding of the company. As UN PRI signatories we also participate in collaborative engagements on select issues.
