The public discourse surrounding environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing has ranged from excessive hype to a more recent backlash, yet our views on sustainability have not changed.
We view sustainability as a fundamental investment issue and believe ESG factors can affect a company's intrinsic value if not properly managed – and thus the returns we can expect over the long term.
Rothschild & Co’s approach is to invest for generations. We seek companies that will help preserve and grow the wealth of our clients in a sustainable manner. We assess how companies can adapt to the sustainability risks presented by an everchanging world, and how companies themselves play a role in shaping the world around us.
