Description At M&G Investments, we have been investing money for individual and institutional clients for more than 80 years and our principles of long-termism, responsible stewardship of our assets and active fund management have been the foundation of our approach throughout. Our overall aim is to grow our customers’ wealth and improve their world by investing with care. We seek to identify the best opportunities, across fixed income, equities, property and infrastructure, for people who care how their money is invested. Approach M&G believes that ESG factors can have a material impact on long-term investment outcomes. Our goal is to achieve the best possible risk-adjusted returns for our clients, taking into account all factors that influence investment performance. Consequently, ESG issues are incorporated into investment decisions wherever they have a meaningful impact on risk or return. We apply this approach to ESG analysis across all asset classes and sectors in which we invest. We believe we should both implement responsible investment principles in the funds we manage and apply the spirit of those principles in our business operations. By driving environmental enhancements in our own offices, for example, we can reduce our own impact and operating costs. Through engagement with our staff, we can improve satisfaction, and attract and retain employees. We are committed to ensuring that our organisational values are reflected in the way our business is run and across all our activities.
