Corporate impact report

As one of the UK’s leading investors when it comes to Responsible Stewardship, we aim to manage our clients’ investments with the highest regard to environmental, social and governance issues.

We know that we must also ensure that we hold ourselves to the same high standards we advocate in our investee companies. We therefore produce our annual Corporate Impact Report, setting out our governance structure and holding ourselves accountable across a broad range of criteria.

Whilst we are proud of many aspects of the report, we recognise the need to improve. The support and comments we receive from both clients and employees helps to further Sarasin & Partners’ contribution to society.

We hope that the findings of this report will contribute to our efforts to optimise our client service, today and in the future. For us, this means not only providing a full range of innovative investment products, but also offering a well-rounded team of employees able to deliver best-in-class service.
