Why is this so?
Sustainable investing is about broadening the use of material, non-financial data in the investment analysis process to include ESG – or environmental, social and governance – metrics. By adding these metrics to the investment process, investors can get a broader view of the potential upside and downside of their investments. With that, they can make better informed investment decisions.
Seeing more clearly
Sustainable investing provides a new kind of transparency into our investments – achieved through a new set of metrics that give investors material, often quantitative, data into how well a business is run, where its real risks lie, and how sustainable its business model and practices really are. If fully embedded in the investment decision-making process.
At UBS, we believe that sustainable investing adds value to portfolios within the same risk-return profile. That is why UBS Asset Management has made a strategic decision to bring sustainable investing into the mainstream of our offering to all of our clients.
