Mackenzie Betterworld invests in companies that are making a positive impact on people and the planet. 

ESG first

We lead with ESG analysis and then conduct financial analysis. Our first priority is to rule out companies with poor ESG performance, and then identify companies with the ability to generate a positive impact on people and the planet through progressive ESG practices and behaviours.

Core equity with purpose

Our Canadian and global portfolios are comprised mainly of well diversified large-cap equities that are managed in a growth style undergoing rigorous ESG and fundamental analysis. We believe sustainability is a long-term strategy that can play a role in any portfolio.

No outsourcing

We do original research using our own proven, proprietary process to uncover and evaluate opportunities that meet our ESG standards and financial criteria. With Betterworld, you get independent thinking backed by the strength of Mackenzie.
