Stewardship

We view our role in the investment chain with a straightforward clarity of purpose.

As asset managers, aligning the long-term investment horizons of our clients’ capital with companies that will use that capital to create multi-decade, sustainable value is our ultimate fiduciary duty. We believe stewardship is at the heart of this client proposition.
