About EQ Investors

At EQ Investors we firmly believe that investors can achieve their goals while doing good for people and the planet.

We have an 8-year track record running sustainable portfolios for a wide range of retail and professional clients. We manage active, passive, and bespoke portfolios with over £1 billion under management.

We are proud to be a Certified B Corporation (B Corp) and see our purpose as more than just making a profit: we are part of a global community of leaders who see business as a force for good.

Award-winning portfolios

  • Our experienced team have been at the forefront of sustainable investing for over a decade.
  • We invest in cutting-edge research tools and data in order to select the best funds and measure our impact.
  • We work in close partnership with our fund managers to drive best practice across the industry.
  • We align our due diligence to the best and latest industry standards and initiatives.
  • Reporting on sustainability and investment impact is an integral part of the service we provide.

Investing for good is in our DNA

Our journey over the past decade has been driven by an underlying desire to bring sustainable investing to anyone with an ISA, pension or retirement account.

We invest in industry leaders based on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) standards, and companies whose products and services are helping to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

On the road to net zero

As a business, EQ Investors recognises the global climate emergency

Alongside a group of global B Corporations, we have committed to become a net zero carbon emission business by 2030. In doing so, we take responsibility for supporting the objectives of the Paris Climate Agreement to limit global warming to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels.

Our strategy

We have developed a net zero strategy to guide our business along the decarbonisation pathway that we want to target:

    1. We are measuring the carbon footprint of our operations and working with stakeholders to reduce emissions over time. We aim to offset the remaining emissions that cannot be mitigated.
    2. We recognise that climate change carries significant risks and opportunities for the investments we manage on behalf of our clients. To reflect this, we are committed to:
      • engage to reduce the carbon intensity of investment portfolios over time,
      • measure this transparently, and
      • report on this to our clients across all portfolios we manage.

      As part of this wider effort, we publicly support the recommendations by the Task Force for Climate Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), and encourage partner firms and investee companies to adopt these.
