ESG investing Walking the talk on social engagement

Social engagement is important to UBS Asset Management and is part our corporate culture. It also guides the way we invest and we have integrated ESG factors for over ten years. 

12 Mar 2021

Last year, we asked you - our investors, partners, and readers to help us with two polls:

Poll 1: What kind of recovery will the world see?

Poll 2: How can votes on executive pay impact share prices?

For every poll you answered, we promised to make a USD5 donation to Beyond Social Services in Singapore.

Beyond Social Services helps young people from less privileged backgrounds break away from poverty through education and development programmes.

Thank you for getting involved. We received over 230 responses

We sponsored 400 "Back to School" packs

But more than a straight out cash donation, we backed up Beyond Social Services when they told us that they needed sponsors for a Back to School project.

So we sponsored 400 “Back to School” packs for low-income kids in Singapore’s Henderson neighbourhood with SGD 30 bookshop and SGD 20 shoe vouchers to help them start the new school year.

UBS Asset Management “walks the talk” on social engagement

Social engagement is important to us and is part our corporate culture. It also guides the way we invest.

For close to 10 years now, we’ve talked to companies about their environment, social and governance (ESG) policies and consider ESG factors in how we evaluate companies.

Beyond Social Services

Beyond Social Services is a charity dedicated to helping children and youths from less privileged backgrounds break away from the poverty cycle.

They provide guidance, care and resources that enable families and communities to keep their young people in school and out of trouble.

Their hope and wish is for their beneficiaries to blossom into responsible adults, move past their socio-economic drawbacks and beyond social services by 25.

So far, they’ve reached out to over 10,000 rental units in government rental flats.
