We invest for our clients with the intent of supporting their values, making a positive impact, and providing financial security for generations. Our higher purpose—securing a sustainable future for our clients, our people, and our world—is an integral part of all our investment strategy and informs our approach to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing. We are driven by our responsibility as a global corporate citizen to ensure sustainable benefits for our stakeholders, while doing our part to address global issues that affect our planet’s future. Our ESG efforts are guided by the principles of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
