Sustainability

Our sustainability solutions target specific environmental goals within a robust investment framework designed for higher expected returns. Informed by leading environmental scientists, our approach focuses on issues associated with climate change and aims to significantly reduce portfolio exposure to greenhouse gas emissions, which are the primary contributors to climate change.

We apply more than a decade of experience in sustainability research and data integration to pursue sustainability objectives through systematic investment solutions. Our differentiated approach effectively targets measurable sustainability goals while maintaining broad diversification and pursuing higher expected returns.

RISKS
Investments involve risks. The investment return and principal value of an investment may fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original value. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. There is no guarantee strategies will be successful.

Diversification does not eliminate the risk of market loss.

Environmental and social screens may limit investment opportunities for the strategy.
