Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG)
Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investments provide research-driven, diversified equity portfolios that seek to identify well-managed, responsible companies.
ESG means different things to different people. However, we see the objectives of investors converging around three main categories.
Incorporate ESG factors to improve long-term return and lower investment risk.
Align investments with specific ethical, political, and religious values.
Generate social or environmental outcomes along with financial returns.
Examples of ESG Issues:
