Considering climate as part of our investment process

Considering climate as part of our investment process

Accelerating the low carbon transition

We believe it is important to support our clients to navigate the shifting risks and opportunities of the low carbon transition.

Considering climate risks, where appropriate, is an important part of our investment research and analysis.* We offer sustainable and ESG-focused investment solutions and actively engage with our investment holdings to support their role in the energy transition, when suitable to do so.

We will seek to reduce the environmental impact of our operations while improving our disclosure on climate. We will continue to evolve and look for opportunities to play an increasing role in the decarbonisation of the global economy.

*There are certain asset classes in our Asset Management and Wealth Management businesses where we do not consider climate risk, such as derivatives, cash, currency and commodities.

A multi-boutique approach to considering climate

As a diversified multi-boutique and global business, each of our asset managers have their own investment philosophies and approaches to managing climate risks and opportunities for our clients.

Our investment teams exercise independence in determining their investment strategies. As active managers, they do this through integrating climate risk considerations within investment processes, where appropriate, and through active engagement with the boards and management teams of the companies they hold, when suitable to do so.

Perpetual Wealth Management

Where the Wealth Management investment team hold direct assets, such as Australian Equities, ESG considerations, including factors such as climate change, green energy transition and natural resource scarcity, are considered as both an opportunity and risk when securities are selected.

As a multi-manager, a significant portion of the Wealth Management division’s investments are managed on behalf of clients by external investment managers. The division’s manager selection process incorporates ESG considerations as part of the due diligence of all investment managers. This analysis considers factors including processes, alignment, engagement and voting, net zero, thematic and impact objectives, and screening, for example.

The Wealth Management investment team has also been working to enhance reporting for its clients and has appointed a new platform provider to help provide this reporting across the multi-manager and direct equity portfolios.
