Responsible Investing

Engagement

We believe stewardship of our clients’ capital is essential to our role as an active asset manager and fiduciary.

  • Engagement is an integral part of our fundamental research process, providing a framework for dialogue between us and our portfolio companies.
  • Cohen & Steers also seeks to encourage companies to adopt ESG best practices at an industry level through industry groups and initiatives.

We take an active ownership approach with companies, advocating for sound ESG principles that we believe will help optimize investment performance. This engagement is integral to our fundamental research process, providing a framework for dialogue to actively support, influence or change ESG practices that may have a material impact on a company’s ability to preserve or grow its economic value.

Our leadership position in listed real assets and alternative income amplifies our voice and influence when we engage with companies—whether we currently invest in them or not.

We believe this helps our ESG advocacy have maximum impact.
