Asset Class: Responsible Investing

Responsible Investment 2018 Review

Biking by the beach banner

Asset management has been transformed recently by the cultural changes that followed the financial crisis, the rise of technology, and the growth in regulation and the expansion of emerging markets. The most profound, however, and the most exciting, is the debate about purpose. Across the financial sector, there is growing recognition that while, of course, delivering financial returns is our objective, we also need to analyze how our actions — or inactions — have an impact on meeting the world’s needs.

At BMO Global Asset Management, we recognize the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a complementary framework for identifying key global challenges and their solutions. This report sets out how our engagement contributes to addressing the SDGs, at the same time as addressing financially material risks. We are pleased to offer investment products that support our clients in directing capital towards sustainable solutions, including our newly launched BMO SDG Engagement Global Equity Fund.

We look forward to influencing change on our five key themes for 2019: protecting vulnerable workers, gender equality, climate change, biodiversity and water, and antimicrobial resistance.
