Frontier believes environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors directly impact long-term investment performance. We actively incorporate responsible investment into our investment research, manager research and client advisory services. Frontier’s Responsible Investment Policy is available here.
As each investor’s responsible investment needs are unique, our approach to responsible investment service is modular and covers a range of factors to help us tailor flexible solutions.
Joey Alcock leads our Responsible Investment Group. The Group includes senior representatives from Frontier’s consulting, research, investment strategy and governance functions, reflecting the integrated nature of our responsible investment approach. ESG is not an adjunct or afterthought to our traditional consulting business, but a front-line consideration.
Our Portfolio Analytics technology includes a Climate Change Module which provides an understanding of the potential impacts of climate change on investment portfolio outcomes under different potential transition scenarios.
Frontier became an early signatory of the Principles of Responsible Investment (PRI) in 2006. In accordance with PRI requirements, Frontier reports publicly on its responsible investment activities each year including the disclosure of its PRI Transparency Report (our latest report available here).
Frontier is a signatory to the Paris Pledge for Action which represents a public commitment to support the greenhouse gas reduction objectives of the Paris Agreement. Frontier is also a financial member of the Investor Group on Climate Change, supporting its efforts in helping investors to manage the impacts on their investments of the economic transition arising from climate change.
