At Newton, we take our commitment to sustainable investing and being a responsible active asset management firm very seriously, which is why we have been a signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) since 2007.

In the latest PRI annual assessment report for 2020, Newton’s credentials in this area are once again reflected in the fact that we have been awarded the highest rating possible (A+) in all areas assessed.
