Sustainability for seeking long-term investment performance and a better future

Across the SLC Management group, we believe investing with an environmental, social and governance (ESG) lens can be one of the contributors to delivering long-term outperformance for our clients. We integrate ESG factors into our investment decision making process where applicable because we believe that contributing to a sustainable global environment is key to creating a better world.
