Thornburg Announces Personal ESG Portfolios
Thornburg Investment Management, a U.S.-based global investment firm with $40 billion in client assets, launched Thornburg Personal ESG Portfolios, a new separately managed account (SMA) capability that allows investors to emphasise material Environmental, Social or Governance (ESG) factors within their portfolios.
“ESG issues are complex and interconnected, requiring fundamental research to uncover opportunities and risks for each company,” said Jason Brady, president & CEO of Thornburg investment management. “We know that investing with ESG criteria can mean different things to different people. By addressing both of these factors in Thornburg Personal ESG Portfolios, we hope to provide investors with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to tailor their portfolios to their ESG values."
ESG is an organic extension of Thornburg's core investment skills as a fundamental, bottom-up, active manager of global equities and fixed income. Analysts and portfolio managers at Thornburg use materiality standards from the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) to evaluate ESG information and other factors. Importantly, Thornburg does not outsource ESG decisions.
