Differentiated research and active engagement

By combining our proprietary research models with a structured corporate engagement framework, we work toward building sustainable long-term value in both the companies we invest in and our clients’ portfolios.

An Approach Based on Materiality

To assess how well a company is positioned to respond to various Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) challenges or capitalize on opportunities, our team draws on expertise in specific economic sectors and data from diverse sources to determine which specific factors may drive corporate performance in any given industry.

Influence That Makes an Impact
