Our Responsible Investment and Stewardship Framework

We’ve introduced our Six Principles of Responsible Investment to guide our decisions on asset allocation, manager selection, fund research and engagement activity.

As environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities become better researched and understood, it’s clear that these factors can have a financial impact on investment portfolios. So where we believe ESG factors pose downside risks to investments, or offer potential upside opportunities, we will incorporate them into our decision-making.

Our principles define how we will do this to help secure our customers’ long-term financial futures.

They are underpinned by our Stewardship Commitments to:

  • be responsible stewards of the assets we oversee
  • influence investee companies to engender positive change
  • exercise strong governance over the fund managers we partner with.
