Change what you don’t like,  invest in what you do

Change what you don’t like, invest in what you do

Through active ownership we press for positive change, enhancing the investment process while having a positive impact on people and the planet.
Active Ownership to help activate change

At Quintet, we place sustainability at the heart of our business and as a driver of our clients’ investments. We engage as active owners because we are convinced that when companies adopt sustainable practices they become better businesses, which benefits investors, society and the planet.

Investors can use their voice to press for positive change through a combination of dialogue with companies and voting at shareholder meetings. That is what is meant by “active ownership”, which constitutes a key part of our investment strategy.

Change what you don’t like. Invest in what you do. That’s what we believe.
