Investing with purpose

We take responsible investing seriously and embed environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in our investments approach.

Considerations for climate change, technological innovation, and socioeconomic and geopolitical shifts affect how we invest. Nationwide Investments believes these factors directly influence long-term, risk-adjusted returns and support a more holistic view of investment performance.

We believe resilient financial markets and economies are critical to achieving long-term returns and fulfilling our mission. We invest in assets specifically related to solving sustainability challenges.

Economic sustainability, long-term prosperity

In addition to the sustainability focus of our company’s investment portfolio, our Investment Management Group (IMG) manages assets and oversees external sub-advisors who manage mutual funds, variable insurance products, exchange-traded funds, collective investment trusts and private placements. The IMG team’s sustainable investing integration approach is built to evolve with business needs to help protect people, businesses and futures with extraordinary care.

As a prudent fiduciary, IMG aims to create economic sustainability by promoting long-term prosperity for all, social cohesion and environmental health. Our goal is to integrate and advance material ESG factors across our investment lineup and asset management partner firms to influence and enhance long-term investor value creation.
