An ESG Philosophy
We believe that sustainable investing is the future of investing, and that someday, all investors will incorporate environmental, social and governance factors into their decisions. For now, however, it's your "ace-in-the-hole" for finding superior companies with sustainable competitive advantages:
- Respect for the environment brings efficient use of resources and higher profit margins.
- Employee satisfaction breeds superior customer service and repeat purchases.
- Sustainable product design leads to consistent product quality and long-term brand value.
- Robust governance standards breed a culture of disclosure and compliance, bringing higher market valuations and a lower cost of capital.
Companies that pass these strict ESG tests are building "sustainable profitability" while making a positive impact from their business and charitable activities. Employees like to work there, communities appreciate their citizenship, and investors are proud to have them in their portfolios.
