Managed Fund

We rate all companies on environmental, social and governance (ESG) metrics. We believe companies that better manage these ESG risks make better long-term investments.

Environment and social impact as priority

Not only do we invest ethically, excluding sectors that do harm, but we actively invest in companies doing good. We do that using our ESG metrics below. 



The environment is a core consideration for how we invest. This includes climate change and carbon emissions, air and water pollution, biodiversity, deforestation, energy efficiency, waste management and water scarcity.

Consideration of people and relationships cut across our investment policy too. This includes customer satisfaction, data protection, privacy, gender and diversity, employee engagement, community relations, human rights, and labour standards.

Every company has a governance structure and protocols. This level of oversight is critical.  Considerations include but are not restricted to board composition, audit committee structure, bribery and corruption, executive compensation, and lobbying,
