We recognize that environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues may create both opportunities and risks for our clients’ portfolios. At PineBridge, we seek to address these factors through our investment process to gain a better understanding of their potential impact on current asset values and future performance. We have been doing this throughout our decades of experience managing equity, fixed income, multi-asset, and alternative investment portfolios.
By integrating ESG factors into our investment process, we believe we are able to better fulfill our mission of partnering with clients to achieve their specific investment objectives.

Business models that improve upon their sustainability create value not only for society, but for investors in those businesses.
As active managers, we advocate for, and strive to hasten, change in the select companies we invest in. We take an analytical approach that considers how companies are seeking to improve upon ESG issues.
Our approach considers ESG factors from both an investment return and risk mitigation perspective over the medium to long term.
PineBridge is a signatory of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), which provides a framework for reporting and assessing ESG factors. We view the PRI as an additional tool to help us pursue our primary objective as an asset manager: to improve and preserve the financial interests of our clients across our global investment platform by optimizing economic returns for a given level of risk.
Our second annual Corporate Responsibility Report highlights the advancements made on our commitments over the course of 2022.
In 2022 we laid the groundwork for further real-world progress through commitments to a number of prominent, actionable global corporate sustainability initiatives. We believe concerted efforts with other stakeholders are the most efficient path to effecting real change, and they help guide our own actions – enhancing an investment philosophy focused on improvement over exclusion when it comes to ESG and sustainability issues.
We believe a pragmatic and thoughtful approach to fulfilling our corporate responsibility goals can better serve the interests of our clients, employees, and local communities – and lead to more effective long-term results.
As active investors, we believe in the value of industry partnerships and remain committed to advancing industry-wide education and action surrounding environmental, social, and governance issues.
We explore timely and relevant research topics and regularly author articles on a variety of ESG issues impacting the industry and our portfolios across equities, fixed income, and alternative asset classes.
We actively participate in global industry discussions through working groups as well as formal and informal partnerships to help further the ESG conversation.
