"We believe that combining fundamental financial analysis with environmental, social and governance (ESG) screening enables us to identify and mitigate risks that conventional approaches to investing are less likely to discern."
Our goal is to help Canadians achieve their investment objectives in a way that aligns with their commitment to progressive values. We believe that ESG factors should be an integral part of the security selection process – not an afterthought.
