Acadian Asset Management LLC ("Acadian") is a Boston-headquartered investment management firm with wholly owned affiliates located in Sydney, Singapore, Tokyo and London. Acadian maintains a dedicated presence in Australia through Acadian Asset Management (Australia) Limited.
Acadian believes that a focus on Responsible Investing will help us continue to respond to client needs, potentially identify unique sources of out-performance, and support a more sustainable and stable marketplace for generations to come. As such, we embed ESG considerations across our core investment process.
Acadian was an early adopter having implemented ESG issues since the 1990s and being the first quantitative firm to sign the UN PRI (Principles for Responsible Investment). Over the years, we have invested in new ESG data sets, conducted ESG-related alpha and risk management research, signed and participated in the development of country-level Stewardship Codes, and integrated a portfolio-specific ESG characteristics report for every account.
Our efforts in this space have been well rewarded, with an “A+” rating in the 2018 review period on Strategy and Governance and we received “A” scores on both Incorporation and Active Ownership by the PRI.
