Stewardship Report 2018/2019

Better firm, better investing, better world

Our core objective is to invest the assets entrusted to us by our clients so that we meet their investment objectives. We do so as responsible investors with a declared commitment to active stewardship including engagement and integration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues throughout the business.

More than ever before it is clear there are critical extra-financial issues that we need to consider to provide strong returns for our clients. The top three risks outlined by the World Economic Forum are all related to the environment; extreme weather events, failure of climate-change mitigation and adaptation and natural disasters. This picture presents clear risks and opportunities for investors. To this end, we believe that capital markets, investors and ultimately the long-term beneficiaries will gain from greater focus on sustainable development, opportunities around green finance and strong governance systems in markets.

“We see our commitment to stewardship as an integral part of our effort to build a better investment firm to finance a better world.”

- Hendrik Du Toit, Joint CEO Investec Group
