The behaviour of investors drives social change and that is why St. James’s Place supports the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment.
This promotes the incorporation of Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) factors into investment decision-making. St. James’s Place has been monitoring and encouraging its fund managers to become signatories to the Principles for a number of years.
It is our legal duty to act in the best long-term interests of our clients. And we believe that taking environmental, social and corporate governance issues into account in our investing can only enhance this as they serve as effective risk management tools. St. James’s Place works closely with third party investment advisors to ensure our fund managers take into account ESG and CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) criteria.
As the UK takes shape post-pandemic, we believe ESG goals must be included in economic revival. Social change – from more home working to less greenhouse gas emissions – has happened, and the investment industry has an important role in ensuring it continues.
