What is Responsible Horizons?

Many investors are looking to achieve a positive environmental or social impact, and to invest in sustainable businesses that will stand the test of time. Every Responsible Horizons portfolio will:

  • Reflect long-term themes, such as climate change and social inequality.
  • Emphasise the best and avoid the worst performers on ESG issues, based on research powered by Insight Prime.
  • Avoid certain investments with a negative impact, including tobacco producers.
  • Apply a higher hurdle for environmentally sensitive industries, like energy companies.

About Insight Investment

Insight Investment is one of the world’s largest investment managers, with extensive expertise in risk management, fixed income and absolute return strategies.

Why Insight?

A founding signatory to the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) in 2006, Insight has long believed that ESG factors can affect the value of investments. Reflecting the deep integration of ESG analysis in Insight’s business and activities, in 2020, the PRI awarded A+ ratings to Insight for strategy and governance, and for all relevant fixed income capabilities.

Responsible Horizons aims to build on Insight’s evidence-based approach to both investment research and ESG analysis, supported by ESG ratings from Insight’s proprietary model Prime, to offer leading solutions for investors seeking to express their values as they pursue attractive returns.
