Capital at risk
Our investment strategies consider a range of factors that may impact the ability of holdings to generate returns. They include environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters.
What is integrated investing?
As long-term active investors, our research incorporates many different sources of information and takes a broad perspective on generating returns. That means all our strategies consider issues that could enhance or detract from the long-term growth of the assets we back. ESG-related considerations might cover the extent of a company’s investment in carbon emission-reducing technologies, how it deals with user privacy and the performance-related incentives it gives its managers.
How does Baillie Gifford integrate ESG?
When thinking about environmental, social and governance matters, we consider ESG factors as an input to investment analysis, and we think about how these factors might impact long-term value creation.
Ultimately, investment materiality – the relevance of the factors to financial performance – is what matters. For us, ESG integration is synonymous with long-term investment.
