As institutional managers, we believe that we have a duty to act in the best long-term interests of our beneficiaries and that environmental, social, and corporate governance (“ESG”) issues can affect the performance of investment portfolios.

In October 2012 Ubique became a signatory to The Principles for Responsible Investment Initiative (a partnership between the United Nations and global investors – known by the name UNPRI) in 2012, and committed to the six principles prescribed by UNPRI.

We address ESG in our investment decision making process (in assessing quality and value); actively exercise voting rights; where required support shareholder initiatives to promote ESG disclosure; promote the acceptance of the six principles; work where possible with other signatories in implementing the principles; and report annually on our progress in implementing the principles.
