Responsible investing

We put our clients’ best interests first

We seek to earn the trust of our clients by providing superior long-term investment performance and outstanding client service, and by holding ourselves to the highest ethical standards. When we make investment decisions we always have our clients’ best interests at heart. Similarly, when we encourage clients to exercise their rights as shareholders, or when we do so on their behalf, our priority is to protect and enhance the value of their investments.
