A Proud Responsible Investor
As a long-term investor, responsible investing is an essential part of who we are and what we do. It’s also important to our clients. Our primary mandate is to grow the value of our clients’ funds. Assessing and managing investment risk is an integral part of how we meet our responsibility.
Our clients share our belief that companies that employ robust environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices are better positioned to generate long-term value than similar companies with less-favourable practices. When investors take ESG matters into account, they can better understand, manage, and mitigate risks associated with long-term investments.
As a long-term investor, BCI brings more than capital to the companies in our portfolios. Responsible investing is integrated into our investment analysis and decision-making processes. Once invested, we’re active owners. Our investment outlook, combined with our philosophy of active ownership, allows for the alignment of interests with the companies in which we invest – this alignment is an essential part of responsible investing. We consider good corporate governance to be the over-arching framework for effective company management.
We are guided by our Responsible Investing Principles.
