Beyond the aims of preserving or growing capital, or generating income, we know that many of our clients also want to ensure that the principles of responsible investing are incorporated in the St. James's Place investment approach. As a company, they emphasise the principles of responsible investing in the management of our clients’ assets, not least through their awareness and integration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into their investment process.
St. James's Place believe it is of importance that the fund managers be aware of the major environmental, social and governance issues surrounding the businesses they invest in and how our clients’ money is run. Consistent with our view to be responsible stewards, St. James’s Place is a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) and the UK Stewardship Code.
A key focus for the Investment Management experts at St. James's Place, is to grow and develop the responsible investment approach that they can offer to their Partners and clients. This is done through a collaborative process with the external fund managers selected to support and guide the integration of responsible investment principles into each of their investment strategies.
An example at the forefront of this sector can be founds in the introduction of the St. James's Place Sustainable & Responsible Equity fund, run by Impax Asset Management. The manager is focused on the long-term growth opportunity arising from the transition to a more sustainable economy.
Specialists in the transition to a more sustainable global economy.
