As a responsible investor, Brunel recognises that every company or asset they invest in operates interdependently with the economy, civil society and the physical environment. Considering whether these interdependencies create financially material risks or opportunities for the investments is a core part of responsible investment. But this approach goes wider than just looking at individual investments – it applies to the beliefs and principles of the investor themselves and then using these beliefs and principles to guide the investor’s strategic thinking and embedding it in all they do. At the heart of every decision is the belief that doing this enables Brunel better manage risk and generate sustainable, long-term returns.
As one of the first investor members on the Development Council, Future-Fit working with Brunel on the continued refinement of the Break-Goals, with a particular focus on goals pertaining to the finance industry.
