Our investment beliefs

Focus on Customers

Our customers want to know where their money is invested and the impact it has.


The best future for our customers is one where we collectively achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement.


Adopting a net zero target is appropriate for most customers and products. Read more about our climate change commitments.


We act as the responsible steward of the assets we invest in on behalf of our customers.


Change is best driven by being an active owner and engaging with companies where there are issues to be addressed. 


We believe that incorporating economic, social and governance (ESG) factors within the investment process will help manage risk and generate better returns.
