Tides Canada believes that a balanced consideration of the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance of companies can generate enhanced long-term investment performance and is a prudent investment approach. Tides Canada further seeks to align its investments with its mission to foster a healthy environment and just society and as such will ensure investments are aligned and engaged to these ends.
Our Investment Policy provides an outline of our approach to investing in a manner that provides reasonable safety and preserves the current purchasing power of invested funds, while achieving rates of return attainable by a knowledgeable and prudent investor through income, dividends, and capital growth.
