At WEDGE, we believe that environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues can meaningfully impact the future economic performance of a business. To this end, we seek to integrate ESG factors into the investment process in a way that is consistent with, and in furtherance of, our primary duty as a fiduciary to preserve and enhance the long-term value of our clients' assets.
WEDGE is a signatory of the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). The PRI provides a globally recognized set of principles for incorporating ESG issues into investment practice. As a signatory, WEDGE is committed to considering ESG factors as part of its decision-making process. WEDGE supports the goals of both the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and the Paris Agreement. We believe our support of these initiatives demonstrates our commitment to a more sustainable global financial system and complements our investment process and beliefs.
