We strive to be both a responsible investor and a responsible organisation.
Within our organisation
Our commitment to the community
We are excited to support this new initiative to create more internship opportunities for black people. We welcomed our first intern in the summer of 2021 and aim to continue to support this initiative across more teams next year.
Sponsoring valued endeavours
We support a variety of activities that match our values, including sponsorship of UK Paralympic athlete, Hetty Bartlett.
Within our investments
We disclose proxy voting decisions across all pooled fund holdings.
Sustainability-related disclosures required under SFDR
Each team believes that the consideration of material ESG risk factors and the prudent application of best practice in responsible investment can positively impact the long-term risk/reward profiles of portfolios. Consistent with our core business model, which is purposefully designed to enable teams to retain a high degree of autonomy over their investment processes, specific approaches to responsible investment are contextualised by the opportunities and constraints our teams face.
Decentralised investment teams take the lead on day-to-day ESG integration, supported by our centralised multi-disciplinary sustainability function.
At Redwheel, we believe that prudent consideration of ESG factors and application of best practice in responsible investment can positively impact long-term portfolio outcomes.
We believe that approaches to responsible investment should be contextualised with respect to factors such as focus market, strategy type and asset class, in order to be effective – this is particularly the case at Redwheel, where investment teams retain a high degree of autonomy over their investment processes.
To ensure that our responsible investment efforts remain well coordinated, we have introduced a centralised multi-disciplinary sustainability function to help support and advise our teams, raise awareness of developments, and lead in cross-team activities – this sustainability function also leads in the area of policy development around investing for the long-term, both within Redwheel and across our industry more broadly.
