Regarding Environmental, Social and Governance Investing:
We believe that our core mission of providing superior risk-adjusted returns to investors is enhanced through the integration of “socially responsible” / “environmental, social and governance” (we refer to these collectively as “ESG”) factors into our investment process. As signatories to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment, not only do we wish to deploy capital in alignment with our clients’ and our own values, we also recognize that ESG issues affect security valuations and have the potential to drive increased volatility in the securities of issuers perceived as deficient on these issues, and we are committed to using the tools available to us to advance these important goals in the marketplace. Please contact us to learn more about our full ESG Policy and various ways we work with clients on their ESG needs.
