Our investment team was founded by bringing together seasoned investment analysts and leaders from the sustainability research field. Today these skills are integrated into Generation's team of 25 investment professionals who have over 150 years of combined investment experience. Sustainable Investing for the Long Term Generation's investment approach is based on the idea that sustainability factors—economic, environmental, social and governance criteria—will drive a company's returns over the long term. By integrating sustainability issues with traditional analysis, we seek to provide superior investment returns.* We are closely aligned with our clients, and our performance is measured over the long term. A Unique Research Platform to Analyze Global Challenges Generation has built a global research platform to integrate sustainability research into fundamental equity analysis. We focus on key drivers of global change, including climate change and environmental degradation; poverty and development; water and natural resource scarcity; pandemics and healthcare; and demographics, migration and urbanization. These global challenges pose risks and opportunities that can materially affect a company's ability to sustain profitability and deliver returns. Our research plays an important role in forming our views on the quality of the business, the quality of management and valuation. A Diverse Advisory Board Our Advisory Board, convened by our Chairman Al Gore, helps set our long term thematic research agenda into global sustainability issues. The Advisory Board is a diverse set of global thinkers who help us anticipate the changing context for business. Vision Generation's vision is to embed sustainability into the mainstream capital markets, and our core values reflect a commitment to responsible citizenship. Five percent of the profitability of the firm is allocated to the Generation Foundation, which will support global non-profit sustainability initiatives.

VIM is an active, value-driven, long-term manager which employs a number of methods, including themes, to help identify industries and companies that are well positioned to benefit from medium-term growth regardless of their location, aiming to generate excellent total real returns with minimal risk of permanent capital loss. The firm performs bottom-up analysis on investment opportunities, to derive detailed absolute valuations and where applicable, an assessment of the level and sustainability of dividend yield. Capital preservation and growth are considered paramount in the investment process and encompasses a global approach so as not to artificially constrain their investment universe. VIM has a two phase real return approach. They first seek to select good quality companies for entry into their \"universe of investable companies\". They then typically construct a concentrated portfolio from stocks in the universe by remaining patient in order to pay the right price. The investment process is the same for all global strategies and only differs at the portfolio construction stage. The Global Focus strategy is the most unconstrained. The Global Equity Income strategy aims to pay a high sustainable dividend and is more constrained in the stocks that can be bought. The Global Real Return strategy seeks to further protect the downside by the use of index derivatives.
