OUR POLICIES & REPORTS

Responsible investing has been built into our strategy since Comgest was founded over thirty years ago. In 2010, we formalised our commitment by becoming a signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment.

RESPONSIBLE INVESTMENT


We consider the impact of candidate companies’ activities on health, safety, society and the environment. Our stock selection excludes certain sectors which may be detrimental to society, including controversial weapons and tobacco.
