By considering environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors alongside traditional financial factors we believe we can deliver investment objectives, responsibly, and with a positive impact on society and the environment.
Each of our businesses has an adapted ESG investment process, whether that be for investments into renewable energy, property lending and high-growth technology investments or for our tax-efficient and wealth management products for financial advisers.
Beyond our investments, we also continuously seek to improve our wider ESG approach. This includes relevant training, wellbeing and climate positive initiatives for our people, as well as an operational carbon reduction plan.
At Blackfinch, we take our own ESG commitments and credentials seriously. That is why we are a signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), placing us at the heart of a global community seeking to build a more sustainable financial system.
We are increasingly aligning our policies, processes and communication to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – a universal call to action to tackle the world’s greatest challenges and a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet.
We're proud to have partnered with Intelligent Partnership to bring you ‘An Adviser’s Guide to ESG: tax advantaged investments’ - a practical resource on all things ESG. Within the guide you'll learn about the current ESG context, complexities, strategies, practical tips and a variety of case studies for you to use and share.
If you'd like to discuss the guide with someone from Blackfinch, please contact [email protected].
We’re developing our CSR framework to co-ordinate and consistently drive our business and social practices in the following areas:
The Client Environment
Adapting and evolving our products and services to ensure that they meet clients’ needs and aspirations
The Community Environment
We will continue to engage with local and national bodies and support charity through sponsorship and fund raising
The World Environment
We aspire to be a responsible entity and uphold our duty of care to ensure that we contribute positively to the planet’s sustainability.
The UN SDGs are central to ESG as a universal call to action. The 17 goals were adopted by UN Member States in 2015, as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. We’re committed to ensuring alignment with the SDGs, working towards ending poverty, protecting the planet and improving the lives and prospects of everyone, everywhere.
Reflecting our commitment to ESG, Blackfinch has become a signatory to the PRI, a network of investors working to put six key principles into practice. This is a public demonstration of our pledge to responsible investment. It places Blackfinch at the heart of a global community, seeking to build a more sustainable financial system.
