Our Strategy

Responsibility Throughout AB

To implement our responsibility strategy and measure its progress, we’ve created a structure that reflects our firmwide commitment to responsibility, from the Responsibility Steering Committee to ESG analysts and investors as well as the infrastructure that supports them.

We’re committed to being leaders in responsibility—both in how we act as a firm and how we invest on behalf of our clients.
