Latest insights

Is Europe leading the way in sustainable business?

Europe is seldom considered the most exciting place to invest. This is mainly because European index returns – a proxy for average market returns – have been modest over most time frames. But Europe offers some excellent investment opportunities for active investors willing to seek out its treasures.

Climate change statement

We launched our first sustainable investment fund in 2005. At that time we were convinced all companies would need to adjust to operating in an increasingly carbon-constrained world, and more companies would need to develop solutions to make economies less carbon intensive. Our conviction has never waned, nor has the urgency of the carbon-reduction challenge.

Good Old-Fashioned

We often introduce ourselves to prospective clients, friends and strangers as “good old-fashioned, long-term investors”. In an environment where returns are counted by the day, there is a tendency to equate this approach with being stuck in the past and out of touch with the future. Let’s challenge this perception.
