Investment Overview

The Strategy offers exposure to a diversified portfolio of high quality, non-U.S. large-cap companies judged to be adequately managing their material ESG risks and opportunities.
 

Investment Philosophy

We seek to provide high total return by investing in sustainable business models that can deliver value over the long-term. Our beliefs:
The ability of a business to sustain financial success over the long run is key to sustainable share price outperformance.
Businesses increasingly need to consider their impact on the world around them.
An investment approach that focuses on Sustainability, ESG Integration and Engagement is positioned to minimize risk and capitalize on companies' financial success, which we believe compounds over time.
