Sustainability at the heart of your growth strategy

Purpose driven companies outperform

There are a handful of factors that high growth companies have in common. One of which is purpose. More stakeholders than ever before expect companies to step up when it comes to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues. And our investment strategy expects the same.

We believe that a company's commitment to ESG is a solid indicator of its long-term sustainable value creation. Which is why ESG is fundamental in our approach to investing.
