Gresham House is committed to operating responsibly and sustainably, building long-term value for clients across our portfolio.

At Gresham House, sustainable investing is a key part of our business.

 

We strive to achieve the highest standards across all our operations and are committed to integrating responsible business practices.

Our business mission is to deliver strong, consistent financial performance in alternative investments and align ourselves to our clients and shareholders’ long-term objectives.

Our definition of sustainable investment is investment that proactively manages a full range of risks and seeks to make a positive social, economic or environmental impact whilst delivering strong financial returns.

We believe our commitment to integrating sustainable investment practices where applicable across our strategies, has a clear fit with making an active contribution to the sustainability agenda at a global, local and asset level over the long term.

We have developed a clear sustainability policy and are working hard to embed our approach consistently and effectively in line with our commitments, aiming to always be best in class.

Engagement & Voting

Gresham House is an active investor and acts as a long-term steward of the assets across our portfolio. We believe that active ownership, including engagement and voting, are effective mechanisms designed to minimise risk and maximise returns. Our engagement and voting activities are integrated into our business practices and investment processes. Both activities are viewed as a key part of our investment approach and not considered stand-alone objectives.
