Our Environmental, Social and Governance Approach
Our mission is to help our clients meet their investment objectives and enable them to invest across a spectrum of returns, risk and ESG objectives.
"There has never been a more important time, or a bigger opportunity, for companies to focus on ESG and their own role in influencing change. We are focused on putting our unique talents, skills and voice to work to meet our stakeholders’ evolving expectations in terms of our ESG performance."
– Christine Hurtsellers, Chief Executive Officer, Voya Investment Management

Investing with Purpose
At Voya Investment Management, an authentic and comprehensive approach to responsible investment, aligned to our mission, enables us to live and support our values, drive change, achieve growth and meet our clients’ investment objectives.
Key tenets of our responsible investment philosophy:
- Over the long-term, companies with a strong sense of values and purpose, and that are conscious of their impact on society and the environment, are more likely to succeed, and as a result, deliver better investment results
- Our proprietary investment research, not only fundamental but also advanced data and behavioral analytics, is an information advantage that increases the leverage that comes from our extensive presence in global markets
- Active ownership can result in better investment outcomes and is a powerful conduit for change
Environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) factors can impact the investment risk and return profiles of our investments. Investing based on ESG factors may cause a strategy to take risks or forego exposures available to strategies or products that do not incorporate ESG factors, which could negatively impact performance. There is no assurance that investing based on ESG factors will be successful. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
