Corporate Responsibility

Conning's investment centers are Hartford, Hong Kong, London and New York.

United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI)  

At Conning, we believe that environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) practices can affect portfolio performance and are necessary considerations for responsible investing. We focus attention on ESG in our bottom-up analysis, where determining the sustainability of the issuer’s business model is paramount. Companies that have questionable business practices or corporate governance, by their very nature, do not have a sustainable business model over the long term. 

Conning became a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment in April of 2012. We are now working to more formally incorporate these principles, where appropriate and consistent with our responsibilities as a fiduciary, into our investment process.
