Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG)

We believe Culture and ESG are intertwined. We consider them both integral to our assessment of a business.

Voting is the other half of ESG, all resolutions are documented, researched and voted inhouse.

Our ongoing focus on culture and financial sustainability lends itself to strong ESG outcomes. This is evidenced by portfolio emissions significantly lower than index emissions, coupled with outperformance since inception.
