Our goal

At Aberdeen Standard Investments (ASI), our vision is to invest for a better future. We want to make a difference for our clients, society and the wider world – while also delivering financial returns.

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations have been an integral part of our decision-making process for almost 30 years.
By putting ESG factors at the heart of our investment process, we believe we can generate better outcomes for our clients. The impact of Covid-19 makes this goal even more important. Now, more than ever, we need to work together for a more sustainable future.

Our approach

Responsible investing is about delivering value for clients. Our approach falls into two areas. At the investment stage, we use ESG factors to help decide where best to invest. We integrate ESG into our research, analysis and decision-making processes. We also manage specialised funds that incorporate stronger sustainability or ethical principles. Active ownership is how we look after these investments. As shareholders, we vote in a considered manner and work with companies to drive positive change. We also engage with policymakers on ESG and stewardship matters.

To find out more about how we embed ESG into our investment process, please visit our capabilities in focus below.

Risk warning
Risk warning - Investment involves risk. The value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up and an investor may get back less than the amount invested. Past performance is not a guide to future results.
