Measurable Impact

Market leading reporting that gives you transparency on the real impact of your investment choices across key sustainability metrics

Capital is at risk. The value of investments and any income derived from them can go down as well as up as a result of market or currency movements and investors may not get back the original amount invested. Screening out sectors or companies may result in less diversification and hence more volatility in investment values. Past performance should not be seen as an indication of future performance.

Help your clients understand their impact

In 2021, we engaged with 113 companies held in the funds resulting in 78 milestones. Key topics included engagement on corporate governance, labour standards and climate change.

  • Across the Sustainable MAP range, the top SDGs we aligned to were:

    • SDG 3 – Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure. Related holdings included Schneider Electric, a provider of natural resource and energy efficiency solutions
