2021 ESG Annual Report

Our Commitment to ESG Integration We integrate ESG analysis across our firm, not only in traditional equity and fixed income strategies, but in private market offerings as well. Certain of our strategies that are not ESG integrated, such as our co-mingled U.S. Equity Index Put write options strategy, which writes options on the S&P 500, are difficult strategies in which to integrate ESG factors. We continue to innovate, driven by our belief that ESG factors, like any other factor, should be incorporated in a manner consistent with the specific asset class, investment objective and style of each investment strategy. ESG factors can be employed in a variety of ways to target enhanced returns, mitigate risk and meet specific client objectives within a portfolio. We believe that our approach, which is focused on maximizing results for our clients, can also support better-functioning capital markets and have a positive impact on people and the planet.
