ESG Philosophy

Our ESG Evolution
WATCH NOW

"Our ESG philosophy, which is really something that is owned and believed in by the individual investment professionals that work here at Neuberger, is a belief that ESG factors can be material to investment performance over the medium to long term from both a risk and an opportunity perspective."

~ Jonathan Bailey, Head of ESG Investing

Our ESG Policy
As an active manager, Neuberger Berman has a long-standing belief that material environmental, social and governance factors are an important driver of long-term investment returns from both an opportunity and a risk mitigation perspective. We also understand that for many of our clients the impact of their portfolio is an important consideration in conjunction with investment performance.

Our History
CONTROVERSIAL WEAPONS EXCLUSION
Neuberger Berman is committed to supporting and upholding conventions that seek to ban the production of controversial weapons. We are therefore committed across all of our European-domiciled equity and fixed income UCITS funds to not invest in securities issued by companies that we believe are involved in the manufacture of controversial weapons.
