Responsible Investing

Supporting investors sustainability goals, as well as their returns

A key part of our investment process is to consider material risks and opportunities facing companies and industries including Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues.

Our team diligently engages with companies on ESG risks and opportunities, with the aim of strengthening our conviction in portfolio risk management and improving investment outcomes.

Magellan is recognised as a Responsible Investor by the Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA).

This acknowledges our commitment to responsible investing and our explicit consideration of environmental, social and governance factors in investment decision making.
