Sustainability considerations are ascendant priorities for consumers, policy makers, and corporations. These global sustainability megatrends have pecuniary implications for corporate performance. At Causeway, our commitment and approach to sustainability are informed by research. We believe that shareholder-friendly corporate governance and sustainable business practices have the potential to contribute positively to a company’s performance over a full market cycle.


Causeway has applied a deliberate approach to integrate sustainability into our process. We have provided training to fundamental analysts on sustainability issues, built desktop applications to facilitate sustainable research integration, and instituted accountability for observing integration procedures.


Since becoming a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) in 2016, Causeway has conducted programmatic research aimed at identifying key sustainability issues, developing a structured and evidence-based understanding of those issues, and mapping out and empirically testing their investment implications. Our research examines both traditional and big unstructured data sets, employing state-of-the-art quantitative and statistical learning techniques combined with deep fundamental knowledge of the economic drivers of investment performance.

We have developed Causeway Fiduciary ESG Scores that evaluate companies on material sustainability issues. These scores predicted returns in a global equity universe and maintained out-of-sample efficacy in back tests.
