Stewardship and Business Sustainability Reports

This is the fifth year that we have published our Stewardship Report, which outlines how we integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues into our investment process using examples and case studies, and summarises our voting recommendations. However, we have been using the same approach since inception of the firm in 1973 as we believe it improves investment returns and assists our clients to act as responsible owners.

ESG issues are increasingly in the spotlight, and we have therefore expanded this report to give investors a better sense of our investment approach and our efforts. We have also included a “Business Sustainability” section, which captures our ongoing efforts to make an impact for our clients, employees and their families and communities, the financial services industry and the country.

Please download the 2019 report here.
