Can Ethical Investments Still Perform?

Companies and bond issuers who plan around issues like sustainability, climate impact, fairness to all stakeholders, and good stewardship are attentive to risk. These institutions typically articulate clear strategies for managing risk, while rewarding all stakeholders. Their vision can set up transformational goals.

This expansive view of corporate responsibility places the demands of shareholders alongside those of employees, community and the environment. We believe that in the long term, this approach is both fair and rewarding to all.  Much scholarship and data has been devoted to the relationship between investment returns and socially responsible mandates. The recent research corroborates our long-held belief: there is no sacrifice or trade-off in this investment approach.

Managing risk, articulating long-term strategies and executing them successfully are fundamental to any company that wants to succeed. In our view, these priorities confer a built-in advantage on socially responsible companiesone that compels our attention as investors.
