RAM has formally integrated the analysis of these ESG factors into the investment process. To be included in our investment universe, investee companies need to have a clear and verifiable policy on sustainability and corporate governance. All companies whose shares are included in our approved trading list are subject to a detailed ESG analysis, which is documented and revised yearly.

At RAM, the whole investment team is involved in incorporating ESG-analysis to our investment process. Portfolio managers and investment analysts are responsible for the ESG-analysis of each investee company. When there are areas or risks we do not fully understand, we educate ourselves externally and collect relevant information. Our Head of Research ensures the quality and of the analysis and that ESG findings and lessons learnt are communicated to the broader investment team.

It is our objective to minimize the ESG risks on the long side of our long/short investment strategy. Furthermore, we actively underweight/short companies with poor ESG practices.
