Responsible investment is an approach to investment that explicitly acknowledges the relevance to the investor of Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) factors. During the reporting period we inspected corporate action schedules daily and received proxy voting reports from the asset managers monthly. A summary of these reports are submitted to the investment commitee who recognises that the generation of long term sustainable returns is dependent on stable , well-functioning and well governed social, environmental and econmic systems.

Sasria makes a positive contribution to the economic stability, development and growth of the South African economy. One of these avenues include the investment in the infrastructure and development fund  which consists of affordable housing, water and sanitation, transport, renewable energy and other developmental sectors.  

The Board considers ESG issues on Sasria’s investment portfolio as a whole. The Board takes a wider view, acknowledging the full spectrum of risks and opportunities facing them, in order to allocate its assets in a manner that is aligned with the short and long-term interests of Sasria.

The Board recognises that effective research, analysis and evaluation of ESG issues is a fundamental part of assessing the value and performance of an investment over the medium and longer term, and that this analysis should inform asset allocation, stock selection, portfolio construction, shareholder engagement and voting. As and when Sasria makes investments, the investments themselves, and the underlying asset managers, will also be considered from an ESG perspective.
