We recognize that environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues may create both opportunities and risks for our clients’ portfolios. We address ESG factors through our investment process to better understand their potential impact on current asset values and future performance. Throughout our decades of experience managing equity, fixed income, multi-asset, and alternative investment portfolios, we have followed these processes.
By integrating ESG factors into our investment process, we are able to better fulfil our mission of partnering with clients to achieve their specific investment objectives.
We believe that business models that improve upon their sustainability create value for society and investors in those businesses. Moreover, as active managers, we are able to advocate for, and hasten, change in the select companies we invest in. To achieve this, we take an analytical approach that considers how companies seek to improve upon ESG issues. Our approach considers ESG factors from both an investment return and risk mitigation perspective over the medium to long term.

PineBridge is a signatory of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), which provides a framework for reporting and assessing ESG factors.
We view the PRI as an additional tool to help us pursue our primary objective as an asset manager: to improve and preserve our clients’ financial interests across our global investment platform by optimizing economic returns for a given level of risk.
PineBridge has been awarded an A+ score for our strategy and governance efforts in the most recent UN Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) assessment.
