Impact and sustainable investing

As an active manager, we aim to make a positive impact and generate long-term sustainable returns for our clients. We have pioneered a range of innovative impact and sustainable investment solutions offering strong alignment with the core values of our clients and their objectives.

Investing for a more sustainable future

Now, more than ever, capital is needed at scale to advance market-based solutions to make an impact on the world’s most pressing social and environmental challenges. Through our growing impact investment capability, we seek tangible, real-world impact alongside financial returns by investing across a broad range of asset classes, asset types and impact themes.

We assess the impact of potential impact investments against robust frameworks and employ a rigorous and thorough selection process when building impactful portfolios. Our dynamic sustainable investment strategies aim to generate long-term returns by explicitly targeting sustainability outcomes. By investing in opportunities that can accelerate the clean energy transition, break down barriers to financial inclusion and build new affordable homes to meet people’s basic needs or develop environmentally-sustainable buildings that are fit for the future, we can help to tackle global challenges such as climate change, poverty and inequality. We are equally committed to actively engaging with companies, borrowers, and issuers on various ESG and sustainability issues, pushing for greater disclosure, and increasingly, to bring about positive change over the long term.

The value of investments will fluctuate, which will cause prices to fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the original amount they invested. There is no guarantee the objective will be achieved.
