At Royce, our ultimate goal in all of our activities is to deliver the best investment outcomes for our investors.

As signatories of the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), we are joining nearly 1,700 other signatories across the globe representing $62 trillion in assets under management that have pledged to incorporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into their investment research and due diligence process.

The UN-supported PRI's goals are closely aligned with our own rigorous due diligence standards as we seek to invest in companies with sustainable and differentiated competitive advantages.

In becoming a signatory, we have committed to implementing and evaluating the effectiveness of these principles where consistent with our fiduciary responsibilities.

Importantly, evaluating and incorporating ESG factors in investment analysis offers crucial insights into the opportunities and risks for long term, fundamental investors such as Royce and inherently provides for better informed decision making.

By integrating relevant governance and sustainability factors into our investment process, and effectively engaging with companies and their management teams around these principles, we aspire to better manage risk, enhance returns for our investors and improve global corporate sustainability.
