Principled Fund Management
We continue our series highlighting Wespath’s investment beliefs, which help define our investment philosophy, while aligning our products and services with the principles of The UMC.
Investment Belief: Low-Carbon Transition—Driven by the world’s assessment of environmental risks, a global transition to a low-carbon economy is underway. We believe public policies, emerging technologies and physical impacts associated with concerns about climate change are creating winners and losers across companies, industries and countries, impacting investment returns. As prudent fiduciaries, we must assess these global risks and opportunities in the management of our funds. That’s why Wespath actively engages with companies and policymakers to adopt practical and impactful low-carbon transition strategies.
