ESG Investing

At Glenmede Investment Management we aim to produce superior risk-adjusted returns for our clients. To do so, we seek to incorporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) information, — where material — as part of our investment strategies. Our ESG investing capabilities also allow us to offer several strategies which take a more pronounced view on ESG as part of the investment process. In addition, we work with clients to design customized portfolios with focused strategies to meet investors’ ESG priorities.
