Emerge Capital Management (“EMERGE”) was launched in 2016 to make actively managed investment strategies accessible to investors. We offer a comprehensive range of products, focusing on thematic and multi-sector investment strategies that have the potential to transform industries through innovation, sustainable growth, and market leadership.
Our Responsible Investment philosophy is integrated within the realm of these strategies that are available through Separate Account strategies.
Emerge’s Sustainability Belief
Investing in forward-thinking companies is a part of our core philosophy and product offering. We believe that the future of innovative products and services will be greatly influenced by global sustainability issues and the risk associated with them. Thus, investment managers that effectively assess environmental, social, and government “ESG” factors are more likely to generate sustained performance, while having a positive impact the society.
At Emerge, our focus on environment social, and corporate governance is centered around four broad base categories:
- ESG Materials Issues
- Climate Change
- Activity Involvement
- Diversity and Inclusion
What does it mean to invest in sustainable companies?
Sustainable investing directs investment capital to companies that incorporate Environ-mental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors into their business operations. These ele-ments are considered by organizations when assessing the ethical impact and sustain-ability of their firm. Each of the three components contains criteria that organizations evaluate in efforts to make their operations more sustainable and ESG-friendly.
