Our ESG policy is applicable to externally managed funds we select, both the engagement and exclusion approach.
Furthermore, we are long-term engaged shareholders in small cap funds we manage. The intense dialogue and contact with the management and board of these companies is rather exceptional. The Kempen Sustainable Small-cap Fund applies strict ESG criteria in the selection of stocks. In addition, all companies in this fund are approached for positive engagement: a pro-active dialogue to foster ESG related improvement.
