Our key motivation for considering ESG issues within an investment process is to gain a deeper insight into areas of risk and opportunity that could materially impact the value or performance of an investment. ESG issues are often amplified by macro or external factors. ESG issues are often reflected in regulation associated with particular stakeholder issues, or may pose operational, financial, strategic, reputational or systematic risks to economies, industry sectors, companies or physical assets.
