RESPONSIBLE COMPANIES UNDERSTAND HOW ESG SUSTAINABILITY ISSUES IMPACT THEIR BUSINESS MODEL AND THEIR ABILITY TO ACHIEVE LONG-TERM SUCCESS.
We are a signatory of the United Nations supported Principles for Responsible Investment. Laurus defines Responsible Investing as an approach to investing that aims to incorporate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors into investment decisions to better manage risk and generate sustainable, long-term returns.
ESG as Selection Criteria
Companies with strong corporate governance practices and responsible behaviour towards environmental and social issues will be viewed with favourable consideration and have a positive societal impact. Conversely, companies that have poor environmental, labour or corporate governance practices will in our view do poorly. Our research team actively investigates these issues, and conclusions are incorporated into the investment decision‐making process.
