ESG Investing

We believe that material ESG factors will be determinants of success of the companies and countries in which we invest, and so by integrating ESG in our investment processes we will improve our long-term client returns.

GMO’s investment approach has always focused on identifying the most meaningful drivers of success and how we can use those insights to improve our returns. We consider ESG factors to be such drivers of success.

ESG helps us identify issuers who are working to address underappreciated ESG risks and, in turn, enhance their long-term profitability and command a higher premium into the future.
