As long-term investors, we know that the investment decisions we make today impact communities in the future.
We review our RI strategy every three years to build on our approach to stewardship, and to ensure we are proactively thinking about how to address emerging issues in our investment processes. We revisited our 2019 strategy throughout 2020 to better position our business to manage investment issues emerging from the pandemic, and to consider the impact that the companies we invest in have on vulnerable communities and ecosystems.
A survey by Responsible Investment Association Australasia found that 9 in 10 Australians believe it’s important that their financial institution invests responsibly and ethically. (1)
