Overview

  • Since inception, Enam AMC has believed in and adopted the ethos of socially responsible investing. The increasing emphasis on environmental and social issues has led to a natural extension of our SRI-focused investment philosophy towards a totally integrated ESG approach.
  • As a socially responsible asset manager, we feel it prudent to factor in emerging risks and opportunities to evaluate how a company stewards all forms of capital – social, human, physical, natural, and economic.
  • In the long term we believe that companies that focus on sustainability will have higher acceptance from consumers, easier access to capital, lower risk, and higher valuations.

ESG investing involves identifying and applying non-financial factors to identify material risks and growth opportunities
