As a family and management-owned company, we think generationally and invest for the long term. Helping clients to save for retirement and other long-term investing objectives has been at the core of our business for over 50 years.

We believe that investing in companies with high standards of corporate responsibility can enhance and protect investment returns for our clients. Environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues form an integral part of our investment decision-making process. Our rigorous research approach and the use of our forward-looking proprietary ratings system ensure we gain a deep understanding of ESG issues at a company level before they escalate and potentially threaten the value of our clients’ investments.

As stewards, we play an important role in improving the governance of companies in which we invest. We engage directly with companies to promote good governance and sustainable corporate practices, including having robust climate governance in place. We also aim to drive behavioural change by voting against companies that do not meet our corporate governance requirements, when necessary.
