Responsible investing is an umbrella term for all approaches to investing that consider values as well as returns. It aims to exclude profiting from activities that are considered harmful to society and the environment and to invest in organisations that are committed to operating in a way that is sustainable for the future.
Many of the key themes associated with sustainable investing are now mainstream across society. They can provide an attractive opportunity as the global economy becomes more focused on sustainability.
The Pareto Investment Committee work closely with investment managers to assess their approach to such matters. Before approving any fund or product for recommendation to our clients, the Investment Committee will review the Responsible Investment policy.
