Responsible Investing

Responsible investing means we aim to generate attractive long-term returns, while ensuring that the companies we own are behaving in the interests of their communities and wider society.

Mattioli Woods Responsible Equity Fund

Climate change and global warming, the impact of the pandemic and social issues all mean that investors are increasingly wanting to invest in companies that are behaving responsibly.

We now offer a fund that has a unique proposition in the area of responsible investing:

  • we look to blend direct equities and funds
  • we blend growth and value investment styles to lower  volatility while maintaining potential returns we blend geographic and thematic investments
Why invest responsibly?

Busting some myths:

  • “performance is sacrificed when investing responsibly” responsible investing aligns with a number of structural growth opportunities with the potential to outperform over the longer-term
  • “investing in this way can be expensive” – using a blend of direct equities and funds helps to lower client costs
  • “it is impossible to diversify investing like this” we see an ever-growing opportunity set
  • “returns are more volatile” – responsible investing can help to mitigate risk
Why Mattioli Woods?
  • we believe in being a responsible, resilient business; responsibly integrated, responsible to our stakeholders and responsible with other people’s money
  • responsibility has long been embedded in our investment process

We want to invest in the industries of the future and those companies that are adapting to the new environment.
