We strive to be conscientious global citizens and investors

We are committed to an investment process and a working environment that supports sustainable and socially responsible behaviour.

In pursuing our role as responsible investors, we are committed to integrating environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations within our analysis and decision-making processes, and to being active owners, promoting appropriate policies and disclosure wherever possible.

ESG factors are increasingly important drivers of risk and opportunity within the businesses underlying many of our investments, as well as providing a framework for a more general consideration of responsible corporate behaviour.

Acasta Partners is a signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI).

Engagement & monitoring​

We integrate ESG considerations into our investment analysis and decision-making processes, seeking to identify key business risks and to assess the importance placed on ESG by management teams.  The significance of Environmental, Social or Governance considerations are not uniform across industries nor between companies.  The risks to which businesses are exposed are consequentially varied, as are the potential implications to investors in the different parts of an issuer’s capital structure.  Given the breadth of our investment mandate, we incorporate these considerations alongside a thorough analysis of a wide variety of other metrics and financial data.

The mining industry is a meaningful area of investment focus, and we acknowledge both the critical role that many commodities have in the decarbonisation of industry and energy, but also the negative impact mining companies can have without appropriate social or environmental policies.  We are particularly alert to the ESG implications and risks that arise from investments made within this sector.

We strive to be active owners, promoting best practices, including around disclosure.

Diversity & inclusion

We are committed to building an inclusive and diverse workplace that is welcoming to people of all backgrounds. Our investment process is collaborative by design and benefits from the disparate perspectives that a heterogenous team can provide.

We have partnered with community and educational institutions in offering work experience, educational outreach and scholarship, bursary and mentorship opportunities.
