The Student Investment Fund is committed to responsible investment processes, integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles into its decision making.

It’s clear that all the ESG analysts are really passionate about making sure that the Fund’s money is being invested responsibly. We’ve focused this year on ensuring the most material ESG factors are fully incorporated into equity valuations before being considered, working hand-in-hand with the Fundamental teams.

Statement from the Sustainability Officer, Susanna Hudson

The Sustainability Team sits under the Fundamental branch of the Fund, with one representative sitting on each sector team. Together with the Sustainability Officer, the Sustainability Team is responsible for ensuring the Fund is run in a responsible manner and that all ESG risks and opportunities are fully assessed when investment opportunities are researched. Currently the Fund uses screening and fundamental ESG Integration methods, underpinned by the use of its proprietary Sustainability Framework.
