how we embed sustainability into our portfolio management.

Throughout history, companies have had to change with the times. At Lombard Odier, this principle has been part of our DNA for over 200 years. It runs through everything we do, from managing our clients’ assets to running our firm.

Above all, our independent partnership structure allows us to focus on the long term.

In so doing, we recognise the need to protect capital, rethink our approach to investment and embed sustainability at the heart of our investment philosophy.

As wealth and asset managers, we believe it it vital to invest in companies that are well positioned to benefit from The Sustainability Revolution. In our view, these companies will be more likely to generate substantial excess returns in the future. At the same time, we avoid investing in businesses that can’t or won’t proactively adapt, because of the risk they may become ‘stranded’. We believe that companies with a combination of sustainable financial models, sustainable business practices and sustainable business models will drive excess returns.
