Whether you have already committed to sustainable investing or are interested in accessing new opportunities and sources of return, we want to help you unlock the power of your wealth and invest in the future.

Investing in the future

Some fear change. Others invest in it

We believe that with no change there is no growth. Sustainable investing is evolving rapidly. There are many opportunities to innovate, seek untapped sources of financial return and make investments that can bring about measurable change. We’re committed to listening to you as we grow our sustainable investing offering and pioneer new approaches, such as multi-asset climate neutral investing, which you can read more about in the section ‘We can do more’.

We are pioneers

We believe speaking clearly and concisely is crucial. In order to help solve the world’s sustainability challenges, we first need to communicate with investors like you. We want to help you cut through the jargon of sustainable terminology so that you engage with the impact of your investments.

Industry terminology such as RI, SI, ESG, SRI, VBI and II* lack the transparency required to build confidence. Wherever possible, we aim to make your impact tangible. For example, when presenting investments that can mitigate climate change, we’ll talk about emissions in terms of reducing cars on the road or transatlantic plane trips saved.

* RI = responsible investing, SI = sustainable investing, ESG = environmental social governance, SRI = socially responsible investing, VBI = values based investing and II = impact investing.

Escape the jargon jungle

We view the investment world through sustainable assessment lenses that are shown to have the potential to deliver compelling risk-adjusted returns.

These techniques complement one another and broaden our investment opportunities to help us create better portfolios and outcomes for people and the planet.

Four distinct investment lenses

We believe a sustainable approach is all about opportunities – it’s a powerful toolkit we deploy to enhance our investment process. To help you build a strong sustainable portfolio, we’ve identified four distinct investment lenses – leaders, improvers, themes and dedicated assets.

Our sustainable investment toolkit

Opportunities, not restrictions

We see the possibilities in change, not the threat. In this spirit, while protecting our communities and the environment is our shared mission, we never lose focus on your objectives.

All too often, financial firms treat sustainability as a series of check boxes, and not as an opportunity but a constraint. Sustainable investing can uncover incredible investment ideas – from tomorrow’s technologies to innovative organizational structures that enhance productivity and new ways to solve the world’s most pressing problems.

Opportunities, not restrictions

Many of us are increasingly embracing sustainable practices throughout our everyday lives – from recycling our rubbish and adopting flexible diets to driving electric cars and supporting social justice causes. We believe your investment portfolio should reflect your lifestyle and values, and we’ve designed our investment process to help you on that journey.

The traditional corporate approach of separate sustainable investing and corporate social responsibility (CSR) teams is outdated. What we learn from our investments can help our business, and vice versa. At Quintet our sustainable investing CSR function are one team. That’s because there should be no disparity between what we offer you and how we act as a company.

Walk the talk

At Quintet, we believe the world will change not by our opinion but by our example. That’s why sustainable investing isn’t an option or an add on – it’s our default.

Investing requires you to look forward and, in a changing world, the outlook for a sustainable approach is compelling. For example, renewable energy is increasingly replacing electricity from fossil fuels and the future of the combustion engine is uncertain. Meanwhile, firms are giving their employees more autonomy to work remotely and making their boardrooms more diverse.

We’ve designed our processes and your investment solutions to benefit from these long-term societal changes by embedding an active approach to sustainability at each stage of our investment process. While some may fear change, we invest in it.

Sustainable investing is our default

Our approach

This is a new kind of wealth management, designed for change. Here we set out five aspects that define our approach.

Five aspects

Investment

At Quintet we are changing the way we invest, and what we invest in. So together we can change the world for the better.

No problem can outrun a solution. Wealth can play a truly transformative role in the environmental wellbeing of the earth. Using sustainable investments, we are dedicated to helping you unlock the power of your wealth in order to influence the future.

We believe a sustainable approach is so critical to future investment outcomes that we’ve embedded the concept throughout our investment process and it influences everything we do – from macroeconomic forecasting and our strategic asset allocation framework, to the way we select investments.
