2020 Responsible Investment Report – Investing in a Sustainable Future
At Fiera Capital, acting responsibly has always been one of our fundamental guiding principles, both as an organization and as an asset manager.
As stewards of capital, we manage assets on behalf of our clients who entrust us with great responsibility. Through this important role, we efficiently allocate capital in order to generate long-term positive outcomes that extend well beyond enhancing risk-adjusted returns. As efficient capital allocators advocating for sound governance and ethical business practices from the companies we invest in around the world, we can and must contribute to creating a more sustainable future. This, in turn, will enable economies and societies to thrive and prosper.
Our commitment to responsible and sustainable investment practices has been journey of close to 20 years and we continue to raise the bar year after year ever since we implemented our first proxy voting policy. Since then, we have continued to develop our responsible investment solutions to help clients meet their own sustainability goals. Sustainability is increasingly at the centre of Fiera Capital’s investment approach and further embedded in our entire investment process, in line with the growing demand from clients for access to a broad range of environmental, social and governance (ESG)-focused investment solutions.
