This page relates to strategies managed by Newton Investment Management Ltd. Whether and how ESG considerations are assessed or integrated depends on the asset classes and/or the particular strategy involved. ESG may not be considered for each individual investment and, where ESG is considered, other attributes of an investment may outweigh ESG considerations when making investment decisions.

How We Approach Responsible Investment

ESG Research

We believe that taking ESG factors into account where appropriate and as applicable can lead to better investment decisions. Our responsible investment process is founded on three pillars: in-depth ESG security analysis, active company engagement, and active proxy voting.

Active Engagement

Active engagement with the companies we invest in allows us to monitor changes in management processes, remuneration and social and environmental issues. By taking a proactive approach to our engagement, we can work with the companies we invest in to increase the sustainability of their businesses over time. We also take an active role in the external ESG debate across the wider industry, and help to shape policy and thought leadership.

Holding Ourselves to Account

At Newton, we are conscious of the expectations we place on the entities we invest in on behalf of our clients, and we seek to hold ourselves to the same standards. The way our business is governed is designed to ensure that we achieve our commercial objectives in a responsible and sustainable manner which is consistent with our corporate purpose, and that in doing so we act as we expect others to act.
