F&C- We're here to help

We recognise the important role that environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations play in the creation of superior long-term investment returns. We also believe that investors have a critical role to play alongside policymakers and business in meeting the many ethical and sustainability challenges facing today's world. Our responsible funds seek to be part of the answer to these challenges and make a positive contribution to society.

 

Risk factors
The value of investments and any income derived from them can go down as well as up as a result of market or currency movements and investors may not get back the original amount invested. Screening out sectors or companies may result in less diversification and hence more volatility in investment values.

OUR APPROACH

Invest, avoid, improve

Our philosophy is based on three pillars: invest, avoid and improve. We believe that companies successfully managing ESG risks and proactively applying best practice systems can enhance and protect long-term investment returns.

 

  • invest in companies that are making a positive contribution to society and the environment;
  • avoid investments in companies with damaging or unsustainable business practices; and
  • improve, using our influence as investors to encourage best practice of ESG issues through engagement and voting.

"Responsible investing is not just about managing risk it is also about finding opportunities. Companies providing solutions to global challenges are not just doing good for society, but are also set to benefit financially as these trends play out."
