A Proud Environmental, Social, & Governance (ESG) Investor
As a long-term investor, incorporating ESG considerations into our approach is an essential part of who we are and what we do. With a mandate to grow the value of our clients’ funds, assessing and managing investment risk, including ESG risk, is an integral part of how we meet our responsibility.
Our clients share our belief that companies who employ robust environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices are better positioned to generate long-term value than similar companies with less-favourable practices.
We are guided by our ESG beliefs and our ESG principles, which together, create consistency across asset classes and act as a compass that guides all aspects of our strategy – a strategy which is comprised of four key components and represents our corporate-wide approach.
We use our learnings across all ESG activities, as well as our understanding of emerging trends, to generate insights that help us continuously adapt and improve our strategies, processes, and approaches.
Our ESG Governance Policy establishes the governance framework and articulates the general approach, and related roles and responsibilities at BCI regarding ESG.
Our ESG principles elaborate on what we do to put our beliefs into action. Together, they create consistency across asset classes and act as a compass that guides all aspects of our strategy.
As a founding signatory of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), BCI promotes the acceptance and implementation of responsible investing within the industry.
