Thematics Asset Management (Thematics AM), a subsidiary of Natixis Investment Managers, is now a signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI).
The investment philosophy is based on four pillars: 1) Identification of secular growth opportunities, 2) Focus on the definition of investment themes and universes, 3) Independence in terms of sector, geography or size, and 4) Responsible investment policy.
Karen Kharmandarian, CIO of Thematics Asset Management, said: "Thematic investing means being long-term oriented and identifying the "winners" of tomorrow, ie the companies that benefit from long-term, secular growth drivers, all of our funds are already integrating ESG considerations Throughout the investment decision process - from negative screening to corporate investing in the investable universe and sizing positions to active ESG risk monitoring and engagement and reconciliation - our approach is inclusive and ESG is a core component of our investment philosophy."
Thematics AM offers investors access to a broad range of compelling and active global thematic equity strategies, including Safety, Water and Artificial Intelligence & Robotics.
The team's investment philosophy focuses on identifying, developing and managing investment themes with decades of investment horizons, driven by four global primary forces that are transforming our world: demographic change, globalisation, innovation and resource depletion.
