At Manulife Investment Management, we are fully aligned with our parent company’s commitment to advance sustainable investing globally. We believe sustainable investing improves risk-adjusted returns and goes beyond financial performance to help create long-term value for our stakeholders and communities.
From an investor perspective, sustainability issues can significantly impact investment returns over the medium and longer term. Therefore, we believe that companies with strong environmental, social, and governance (ESG) characteristics represent better investment opportunities. These companies tend to be more resource-efficient, possess a lower ESG risk profile and have processes and products that can adapt to changes in regulations. We take full advantage of our public and private markets capabilities, combining our global sustainability and investment teams with local insights to deliver sustainable outcomes.
