Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) issues are as important to AMP Capital as they are to you. That is why we have established a dedicated team of ESG specialists. But they do not sit on the sideline calling out advice. They are embedded across the business, working with our investment teams. It is an invaluable discipline that helps identify risks and opportunities that otherwise might be hidden.
A decade of experience has shown these factors can directly impact on the performance of your clients’ portfolios. So, of course, we were amongst the first to sign on to the Principles for Responsible Investment in 2007. It is also why we don’t hold back when exercising voting rights in shareholder meetings. We believe understanding ESG factors leads to better decisions for everyone.
