In 2018, we focussed on laying the groundwork across our business lines and support functions
for our first PRI reporting cycle. Workshops were conducted for all of our business lines and
we are proud to report an increased awareness of how ESG issues are material to our core
businesses. From investment banking and private equity to asset management and research,
there is a new-found appreciation of the urgency of embedding ESG factors wherever we can.
We continue to take steps to align our business with the SDGs and to spearhead innovative
and dynamic partnerships that not only fit our overall investment strategy and goals but also
help make the SDGs a reality.
