SUSTAINABLE

Our ESG promise.

We believe that people are inherently good and that success in business is possible, while doing the right thing. As finance embraces ESG it is our mission to be at the forefront of the transition, ensuring that environmental, social, and corporate governance becomes less of a question of philanthropy, and more one of practicality.

What are SDG’s?

In 2015, the United Nations agreed on 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) intending to safeguard the planet, end poverty, and bring prosperity to all by 2030. We aim to support the asset management industry in aligning managers with universal, global sustainability goals while adhering to those same goals ourselves.

A new way of thinking.

As a team, we’re committed to adopting sustainable development goals into our day-to-day responsibilities and we strive to keep evolving to do everything we can to meet the Sustainable Development Goals.

Neil Farrell works as a volunteer fundraiser for Refugee Action and this includes raising awareness for those going through the asylum system, and for encouraging the changing of laws to allow people in the system the right to work.

Raise House is a foundation that has been set up to help children and young adults adjust to life outside of the care system. We work as fund raisers and make charitable donations.

Every Tuesday for the last five years, we have volunteered by helping distribute breakfast to displaced people. We also help by gathering clothes and other items to be distributed.

We’re carbon neutral.

We conduct our business to the highest ESG standards, making every effort to minimise our impact. And while we’re already carbon neutral, we’re hard at work to become a carbon positive firm.

Encouraging brighter futures.

Caring for the communities around us goes beyond business. That’s why we partner with organisations that are actively working in the community to provide opportunities for young people, feeding the homeless, and improving the quality of life for asylum seekers.
