07.2. For the roles for which you have RI oversight/accountability or implementation responsibilities, indicate how you execute these responsibilities.

Breckinridge is led by a Board of Directors acting for the benefit of all stakeholders and guiding an Executive Committee that sets the strategies and trajectory of the firm. Our Executive Committee has oversight of the firm's, sustainable investment approach. Our chief investment officer is responsible for monitoring the overall sustainable investment activities of our portfolio managers and credit analysts. Our Credit Research team is required to evaluate each investment opportunity based on its financial and ESG performance. They then formulate an opinion that is communicated via a centrally accessible portfolio management/trading platform for execution. While all analysts share responsibility for ESG research, in 2016, we hired a senior ESG analyst who oversaw our issuer engagement process and also prioritized ESG integration efforts, while simultaneously performing investment research and analysis. Breckinridge’s chief compliance officer and credit research directors work with investment professionals to help ensure policies and processes are followed and sustained.
