Environmental, Social and Governance
SG Hiscock & Company has had a formal board-endorsed environmental, social and governance (ESG) policy since 2010. Our policy articulates our approach to integrating ESG considerations into our investment decisions, our business, culture and daily operations. SG Hiscock & Company is a responsible investor and we take an active approach to integrating ESG considerations into our investment decision-making process. We believe that the effective governance and management of business risks has a direct impact on a company’s intrinsic value over the long term and helps to reduce investment risk.
As an investment manager, SGH recognises the role we can play in supporting and influencing the impact of ESG issues, whether it be through our active engagement with companies or our investment decisions. We believe that over time, good ESG practices deliver both direct and indirect impacts on shareholder value and provide a broader public community benefit.
SGH is committed to embed ESG considerations into our investment decision practices where the timeframe incorporated in the investment philosophy of the relevant fund is consistent with the medium to longer term nature of ESG factors.
