Environmental, Social, and Governance Investing
ESG stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance. Investors are increasingly applying these non-financial factors as part of their analysis process to identify material risks and growth opportunities.
The Burton & Fisher ESG product range gives investors a way to achieve their financial goals whilst remaining true to their values and beliefs. The portfolios are managed by our investment partner Albemarle Street Partners. We understand why Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) issues matter and our investment process ensures that we adhere to the highest possible standards. Environmental, Social and Governance Investing is a catch all phrase for funds seeking positive societal and environmental change.
By identifying well managed companies fund managers seek to encourage inclusion, diversity and positive environmental impact. The sector can be thought of as a natural extension of ethical investing and enhanced corporate stewardship. Government regulators and suppliers have long understood the importance of good governance when forming long-term relationships.
Investors can now consider these factors when investing their savings. As consumers we are increasingly aware of the harmful impact of human activity on biodiversity and the climate. We also know that unjust hiring practices skew corporate decision making and board behaviour. Well informed consumers and investors are increasingly holding companies and their executives accountable for the societal and environmental impact of their actions.
