Federation believes the pathway to long-term value creation is to invest in companies and assets that address key ESG considerations including:

Environmental impact

Pollution, climate change, water and other resources scarcity.

Social impact

Communities, wellbeing, alleviating disadvantage and occupational health and safety.

Corporate governance

Prudent management, business ethics, strong boards, independent directors and appropriate executive incentives.

Federation invests in the areas that make the greatest net positive difference to society, and we believe in turn will produce the greatest long-term value:

  • The production of clean power.
  • The provision of health and education-related real estate.
  • The growth of companies meeting a social and economic need.

Our Investment Committee and investment team take into account ESG and ethical issues in our process of research, analysis, selection and monitoring of investments. We employ positive and negative screens to ensure that our investing activities are responsible.


Federation’s Responsible Investment Policy governs our approach to investing responsibly.
