We are very proud to be a signatory of the UN Principles for Responsible Investment.
The PRI is the world’s leading proponent of responsible investment, an approach to investing that aims to incorporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into investment decisions, to better manage risk and generate sustainable, long-term returns. PRI works to understand the investment implications of ESG factors and to support its international network of investor signatories in incorporating these factors into their investment and ownership decisions.
As an institutional investor, Aspect has a duty to act in the best long-term interests of its beneficiaries and we believe that ESG issues can affect the performance of investment portfolios. We also recognise that applying these principles may better align investors with broader objectives of society.
