Responsible investing

Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) Engagement

Subject to the exception below, the management of the Company’s investments is not undertaken with any specific instructions to exclude certain asset types or classes, the Investment Manager embeds ESG into the research of each asset class as part of the investment process. ESG investment is about active engagement, in the belief that the performance of assets held around the world can be improved over the longer term.
