Aperture’s mission is to align client and asset manager interests. It is for that reason that environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) considerations are an important aspect of our firm’s culture.

We believe that consideration of ESG factors is a crucial driver of growth and long-term investment returns and is reflected in our deep-rooted philosophy of transparency and accountability for our clients. We understand that it is our responsibility to take an active approach in adopting ESG policies and practices – by our investment and non-investment teams – contributing to a fairer and more sustainable world. To that end, we are excited about our collaboration with PRI the UN Global Compact, and the Investor Stewardship Group.

Active Ownership and Proxy Voting

At Aperture, we believe that active ownership is not only an important tool for corporate governance and accountability, but also a valuable contributor to transition toward a more sustainable future. It is for that reason that we decided in 2020 to switch from the traditional ISS Proxy Voting Benchmark Policy to the ISS Sustainability Proxy Voting Policy. The sustainable policy is designed to ensure that voting is consistent with our ongoing engagement activities and ESG objectives.
