Sustainable Investing - Active Ownership
The Active Ownership team conducts engagement with more than 200 companies in our investment portfolio to encourage companies to improve their performance on environmental, social and governance (ESG). Interns support this process by taking part in the baseline research project group that defines the engagement objectives. The projects typically take 4 to 6 months and the interns are an integral part of the project working group, delivering significant research output for our clients. You will also participate in the conference calls with the companies we invest in to discuss their sustainability strategy.
