Ethics in practice

Our Ethical Charter has been in place since 1986 guiding the way we make investments.

But sometimes it’s hard to comprehend how it works in our everyday decision making process. So we’ve pulled together examples of the companies we invest in and those that don’t pass our ethical charter to help you better understand how we invest.
