Companies are facing a range of issues from an environmental, societal and governance perspective as the regulation and policy settings surrounding these issues continue to evolve. Platinum’s approach from an investing perspective is a continual work-in-progress as we seek to refine and balance our investment approach to these issues with our core philosophy of seeking good medium to long term returns for our clients. Platinum is a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI) and thereby has made the commitment that “as an institutional investor, we have a duty to act in the best long-term interests of our beneficiaries. In this fiduciary role, we believe that environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) issues can affect the performance of investment portfolios.”¹
