Responsible investing at LGIM

We see responsible investing as the incorporation of ESG considerations into investment decisions, alongside engagement with companies, regulators and policymakers, to generate sustainable outcomes.

We are a ‘universal owner’ on behalf of our clients, holding a slice of the global economy. As a result, we believe:

01

Responsible investing is essential

to improve long-term returns, unearth potential opportunities and seeks to mitigate risks by fostering sustainable markets and economies

02

We have a responsibility to many stakeholders

When we allocate capital, we conduct extensive research into potential environmental and societal outcomes

03

ESG factors are financially material

albeit not all to the same degree. And patience is required, because the time horizons of ESG outcomes and investment returns are not always aligned

04

Engagement with consequences

is the best way to deliver long-term, systemic change on a global scale

*Source: LGIM internal data as at 31 Dec 2023. AUM in responsible investment strategies represents only the AUM from funds or client mandates that feature a deliberate and positive expression of ESG criteria, in the fund documentation for pooled fund structures or in a client’s Investment Management Agreement. Mandates which only invest in government bonds are not included, however where LGIM manages a mandate (for a third-party client) which is invested in a broad asset exposure that includes, but is not limited to, government bonds, these mandates would be included subject to that mandate having a deliberate and positive expression of ESG criteria.

Key risks

The value of any investment and any income taken from it is not guaranteed and can go down as well as up, and investors may get back less than the amount originally invested. The risks associated with each fund or investment strategy should be read and understood before making any investment decisions. Further information on the risks of investing is available from LGIM’s Fund Centres.
