Continuous Improvement


A Commitment to Our Investors

Higher Returns from ESG Investing

Firms with high environmental, social, and governance (ESG) ratings are better at retaining customers and employees, cutting costs, and managing the regulatory and compliance landscape.

It is possible to focus on ESG without sacrificing returns, in fact, we have seen higher returns from ESG-focused entities.

The ESG Framework at Ashton Global


Accountability and Transparency

Corporate Governance is a Key Focus

We maintain a vigilant focus on governance because it is an easy and effective way to mitigate risks. We prefer independent boards, few related party transactions, and simple organization structures. 

Good governance also involves establishing procedures that embody best practices and a focus on compliance.
