Responsible investing

ARP’s responsible investing philosophy

As an investment advisor, capital allocator and employer, we believe that ARP have the duty to carefully assess the implications of any potential investment, advice or other action we take, on the environment and our society. We believe that ARP’s thematic focus, searching for investment opportunities across strategies which are driven by secular Megatrends (e.g. climate change), provide an enhanced framework for making these assessments while delivering superior long-term returns and mitigating risk for our clients’ portfolios.

The intention is that our investment decisions, advice and actions contribute to a positive net outcome from an environmental or social perspective in aggregate in the long run, including improvements from a less desirable starting point i.e. where there is a positive direction of travel.  We are very cognisant that the assessment that needs to be undertaken is often complex, opaque and multi-faceted and a suitable infrastructure is required in assessing these, but also we need to be flexible and dynamic, adapting our policies as the full effects on the environment and society are better understood and evidenced.

We also believe that we have an important role to play in the industry and in our communities, collaborating with organisations, continuously educating ourselves and having an active voice in the advancement of achieving positive outcomes for the environment and our society, which in turn, will also benefit our clients. The reporting of these outcomes to our clients is also key in progressing forward and guiding us and our clients in the next steps in this journey.

Responsible investing is embedded in our processes

Responsible Investing is one of ARP’s investment principles and it is firmly embedded in our processes:

  • Our proprietary Responsible Investing Questionnaire is sent to prospective funds.
  • We have developed our own proprietary Responsible Investing Ratings and assess all funds we consider investing in.

ARP is a member of the UN PRI and each of the Megatrends is linked to a number of the UN PRI Principles:
