RESPONSIBLE INVESTMENT

Responsible Investment is a set of investment and ownership practices that intentionally integrates any factor that may materially affect the sustainable performance of a fund’s assets, including factors of an environmental, social and governance character.

Responsible investment and ownership practices:

  • build wealth in a sustainable manner and thereby preserve long-term value for the ultimate beneficiaries.
  • help to align investor’s objectives with stakeholders and the broader developmental needs of society.
  • apply individually and collectively in the South African, African, and global context.
  • enhance delivery of long-term returns while reducing down-side risk.
  • provide transparency to stakeholders regarding the manner in which ESG factors are integrated into investment and ownership practices.

Responsible Investment and ownership practices are informed by investment philosophy or specific client mandate requirements.
