Sustainable Investing: Assessing the risks and opportunities in retirement and investment programs

We aim to deliver exceptional outcomes for clients by harnessing our investment expertise, collaborative culture & collective knowledge to keep ahead of industry and regulatory trends.

We have long believed in the importance of sustainable investment (SI), and are proud to have worked with many corporate plan sponsors along their journey including:

  • Building SI and environmental, social and governance (ESG) knowledge and beliefs
  • Integrating SI into the investment process, including manager selection, asset allocation and portfolio construction
  • Measurement, monitoring and reporting to track progress
