Our principles of investing for the long-term, responsible stewardship of our assets and active fund management have been the bedrock of our approach for more than 85 years.
We believe it is important to look at environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors as they can have a profound influence on a company’s long-term prospects. Since issues tend to evolve over time, we consider them to be a fundamental part of our investment processes. In practice, this means that we take ESG factors into consideration in investment decision-making across our business.
Please remember that the value of investments will fluctuate, which will cause fund prices to fall as well as rise, and you may not get back the original amount you invested.
