We aim to provide Sustainable Wealth Creation: using our unique investment approach to generate wealth through investments that enrich investors, society and the environment over the long term.
Three pathways seeking Sustainable Wealth Creation
Our unique investment approach provides three pathways focused on Sustainable Wealth Creation. In 2020, we reclassified our range of investment products in response to the changing needs of investors, regulatory developments and to clearly express our purpose.
In doing so, we developed three pathways for achieving Sustainable Wealth Creation: Active ESG, Sustainable and Impact. Equally powerful in fulfilling our purpose, they are defined by the outcomes our investors seek.
