How we think about investments
Our objective is to deliver superior net investment returns more consistently than through a single asset manager or mandate. We do this by drawing on various sources of return, while diversifying across multiple sources of risk.
We maintain a collaborative culture, so when you work with us, you have access to our collective expertise and well-informed management team. Strong alignment exists between the various business units, and together with our global network of experts, serves as the foundation of the overall business

Our approach to responsible investing
Consideration of Sustainability Risks

Compliance to the EU’s Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR)
Sustainability Adverse Impacts
STANLIB Multi-Manager does not currently consider the adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors or issue a statement on their websites in relation to the due diligence policies with respect to those impacts. This is pending the adoption of final regulatory technical standards by the European Commission pursuant to Article 4(6) of SFDR, which shall set out detailed requirements in relation to the content, methodologies and presentation of information sustainability indicators in relation to adverse impacts on the climate and other environment‐related adverse impacts. Following the adoption and coming into force of such regulatory technical standards, currently expected to be from 1 January 2022, the Investment Manager will reconsider this position in relation to the publication of adverse impacts in respect of each Fund and, if it determines to provide such information, shall notify investors accordingly.
STANLIB has reviewed their remuneration policy and is satisfied that it meets the requirements of SFDR.
