Inspired by PRI Principles

Inspired by PRI Principles

Elston’s journey is inspired by PRI. PRI is the world’s leading proponent of responsible investment. PRI’s aim is to bring responsible investors together to work towards sustainable markets that contribute to a more prosperous world for all. They encourage investors to use responsible investment to enhance returns and better manage risks.

Preserving balance

Preserving balance

Elston does not apply positive or negative screens to its investment universe. An integrated approach means identifying material ESG risks and opportunities. We are aware of the dangers of reducing exposures to a particular sector as well as the potential removal of diversification benefits that can result from applying screens.

Tailored screening

Tailored screening

Advisers are able to discuss the various applications of ESG that can be tailored to individual preferences and show what’s possible. If an investor has a non-negotiable stance on something like power generation, then advisers can work with them to create a solution that meets their objective.
