ESG & Responsible Investment Philosophy
In line with our ESG & Responsible Investment Philosophy, we continue to evolve how we can best integrate important environmental, social and governance issues into our investment process, and advocate better outcomes for our customers and society.
Our approach to responsible investing centres on our belief there are links between a company or assets management of environmental and social impacts, the quality of its corporate governance and overall success. Analysing ESG and Ethical considerations provide deeper insights into potential risks and opportunities that may materially impact the value, performance, and reputation of our clients' investments.
Through a dedicated team of specialists, our investment teams benefit from direct access to proprietary knowledge on ESG and responsible investment practices across our equities, fixed income, real estate, and infrastructure investment capabilities. This knowledge also informs our approach to active ownership and engagement helping improve overall market standards and increase transparency and investor collaboration on ESG topics.
Integrating ESG across asset classes
We believe there are links between an organisation’s environmental and social impacts, the quality of its corporate governance, and its long-term business success. With more than a decade of experience integrating ESG factors in our decision-making, our key motivation is to gain a deeper insight into risks and opportunities that materially impact the value, performance, and reputation of our clients' investments.
Governance & Active Ownership
We actively advocate for responsible practices through our own operations, investments, and industry initiatives. By directly communicating with company management and directors, we work to improve corporate governance standards, transparency, and disclosure on ESG issues that are important to our customers and society at large.
Our Ethical Framework
AMP Capital has furthered its commitment to ESG and responsible investing by introducing a new decision-making framework. In effect, this means we may exclude, in exceptional circumstances, companies or sectors on ethical grounds across our entire portfolio
