ASB Group Investments Limited

ASB Group Investments is solely owned by ASB Bank Limited. Throughout the years, ASB has been a market leader in investment products and today is one of the largest fund managers in New Zealand with over $20 billion in assets under management for around 500,000 investors. 
At ASB, responsible investment means incorporating environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into investment decisions, to better manage risk and generate sustainable, long-term returns. We have five guiding principles to help us achieve this. 
Transparency: our customers knowing exactly what their money is invested in 
Integration: taking careful consideration of Environmental, Social and Governance factors during our investment analysis and decision-making process 
Exclusions: excluding investments in things our customers have a strong preference to avoid (for example controversial weapons, tobacco and the production of fossil fuels) 
Engagement: working with our underlying investment managers i.e. BlackRock, to influence global companies towards more responsible and sustainable practices 
Alternative product options: for example the creation, monitoring and continuous improvement of two Positive Impact Funds that have a preference to invest in companies making a positive, social or environmental impact

These are the products from this organisation that have been certified by the Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA)
