As a firm, our aim is to be a leader in ESG. To do this, we need to measure our own inputs and outcomes to the same set of standards that we expect of the companies we invest in.
We have used this latest edition of STEWARDSHIP MATTERS as an opportunity to hold a mirror to our own activities.
We have delved deeper into how we are executing on our corporate purpose of Investing to Improve Lives, and how we look to provide our clients with Outcomes Beyond Alpha.
In this edition we cover:
- Martin Currie’s recent, tangible actions as a business which aim to deliver results on Investing to Improve Lives:
- How our actions as active owners can influence positive change for the many stakeholders in the world around us and deliver Outcomes Beyond Alpha.
- The investment thematic of Investing to Improve Lives, and how sustainability and social impact can be both a risk and an opportunity to financial returns across our investment universes.
- Recent engagements where our investment teams have helped influence companies to make positive change.
- How proxy voting can facilitate change that benefits society, and how to overcome some of the challenges that it presents.
- A summary of the extensive engagement and voting activities undertaken by our investment teams in the year to date, despite the ongoing physical barriers imposed by the COVID-19.
It is important we deliver on our purpose of Investing to Improve Lives across our business. When we generate market beating returns for our clients, profits for our financial stakeholders and good compensation for our employees, we can also do more to benefit the communities in which we operate.
We are extremely proud of what we are doing to respond to the climate crisis, to foster a diverse and inclusive business, and how our investment teams work to deliver Outcomes Beyond Alpha through our active ownership agenda.
