Linking ESG to Value Creation
We identify material ESG factors responsible for value creation. Well-governed (G), socially conscious (S), environmentally efficient (E) businesses possess superior ability to withstand risk, capitalize on new opportunities, and generate higher profits and sustainable growth.
Invest in Superior Corporate Culture
We believe that efficient and durable organizations are defined by superior corporate culture, shaped by governance (G) and social (S) factors. G and S are under-researched and under-appreciated by investors offering opportunities for value creation.
Proprietary Thematic Analysis
Consumer behaviors and regulatory actions lead to secular reallocation of capital towards more sustainable economy. Companies that deliver innovative and disruptive solutions to complex problems are well positioned to benefit from this strong structural tailwind.
Active Corporate Engagement
We seek to develop better knowledge and unlock value in our investments through constructive, friendly dialogue with management. We pursue alignment of interests in the areas of governance, social and environmental footprint, capital allocation, and investor relations.
Positive Trajectory of ESG Evolution
We believe that improvements in ESG practices within a company or industry are important drivers of corporate value creation and future investment returns.
