Environmental, Social, and Governance Policy for Listed Assets

July 2019 

A detailed explanation of Schroders Investment Management's approach to ESG.


  • Environmental, Social, and Governance integration looks at investment decisions in a wider context than traditional financial analysis and explicitly includes analysis of a range of risks and opportunities related to ESG drivers.
  • Responsible investment focuses on companies’ citizenship and their contribution to social outcomes.
  • It is central to Schroders' investment process to analyze each investment’s ability to create, sustain and protect value to ensure that it can deliver returns in line with clients’ objectives.

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. • Investing in companies that seek to address major social and environmental challenges may cause the fund to forego certain investment opportunities and underperform funds that do not have a similar focus.
