The U.S. Sustainable Large Cap Core strategy seeks to deliver long-term financial results while integrating material environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into the investment process.

We believe:

  • Companies with both improving business fundamentals and risk management1 of material ESG issues will outperform over time
  • ESG analysis complements traditional financial analysis resulting in a more comprehensive understanding of risk
  • ESG integration rather than exclusionary screening leads to better diversification and a more robust opportunity set

1 Risk management does not imply low risk.
