About U.S. ESG Value Equity

The strategy is focused on investing in companies with above average Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) scores as measured by our proprietary ESG composite rating system. It’s a valuation-centric, actively-managed portfolio of individual stocks selected on a bottom-up basis whose ratings are improving – often as the result of our direct engagement with management.
