Aeon Investment Management’s motive for developing a Social Policy is to set a clear framework that will be implemented in the investment philosophy. The “S” in ESG has often been neglected when integrating ESG and we believe that a better understanding of the socio-economic impact a business has on its employees and the environment it operates in, results in more sustainable and responsible investment decisions and practices.

Aeon Investment Management aims to identify companies which have a positive effect on the South African society through assessment of multiple factors including but not limited to Business Product & Service Delivery, Employment Creation and Labour Practices, Gender Pay Equality, Pay Ratios, Corporate Social Investing and Black Ownership and Management.
