04.2. Describe your reasons for choosing a particular ESG incorporation strategy and how combinations of strategies are used.

GAM's heritage as an independent, pure play asset manager, built on a foundation of high conviction investing means that our investment teams are not obliged to adhere to any house view. Therefore we formulated our ESG incorporation strategy to take account of diversity while building a framework that is robust, systematic and scaleable over time. This first phase of the framework incorporates standardised screening across GAM and where teams are able to, integration of ESG factors into their investment process.

GAM believes that each of our investment teams has the duty to explore all aspects that could potentially impact their investment decision-making in the best interest of our clients, including the consideration of ESG aspects and active ownership practices.

Our approach has been to lay the foundation for working with our investment teams to encourage and explore the most appropriate ways for them to integrate ESG considerations into their investment processes. Our overarching aims are to ensure we fulfil our fiduciary duty and meet our clients' evolving requirements.
