Our investments

ESG integration

As signatories of the UN backed Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), we include Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations across the investment funds and portfolios managed by Quilter Cheviot and Quilter Investors.

Holding companies and fund managers to account

Known as ‘stewardship’, we engage with the companies and fund managers we invest with on your behalf to hold them accountable on ESG issues and influence positive change. As signatories of the Financial Reporting Council’s UK Stewardship Code 2021, you can be confident we are meeting the highest standards.

Ethical and sustainable options

If you are interested in investing in sustainable outcomes or avoiding certain issues, we have a range of dedicated investment options to give you more control over how your money is invested.

Climate action

As Quilter seeks to deliver long-term returns for clients, often over decades, it is important that we improve our understanding and management of climate-related risks which can affect investment returns, and therefore our ability to help people prosper. We also recognise the specific role Quilter can play to help finance and support an early and orderly transition to a low-carbon economy.

Quilter supports the goals of the Paris Agreement and the associated ambitions of UN Climate Conference - COP 26 - which include securing global net-zero by mid-century and mobilising finance to achieve it.
