As responsible investors, we recognise that every company or asset we invest in operates interdependently with the economy, civil society and the physical environment. Considering whether these interdependencies create financially material risks or opportunities for the investments is a core part of responsible investment. But this approach goes wider than just looking at individual investments – it applies to the beliefs and principles of the investor themselves and then using these beliefs and principles to guide the investor’s strategic thinking and embedding it in all that we do. It is important to emphasise that Brunel’s purpose of doing this is to better manage risk and generate sustainablelong-term returns. All actions are predicated on fulfilling our core legal obligations – our ‘fiduciary duty’ – to the client funds and their beneficiaries.
