11.3. 補足情報。[任意]

We analyse company governance aspects from a country-perspective, as governance is mainly driven by local codes, rules, traditions etc. We look for potential outliers from a country-perspective.

We analyse company environmental and social aspects from a sector-perspective. We have determined what the most material environmental and social risks are for our sub-sectors and analyse how well companies address these risks through effective management systems and processes. We are minded that companies do not necessarily "fit well" into industry/sector groups and company activities are analysed for most material risks.  

We identify any controversies that companies have faced.

We write an ESG-write up and these elements are the basis for our proprietary ESG-rating. We review the ESG analysis and score on an annual basis or if a material event occurs.  

The ESG-ratings are available for the entire investment team in our market data provider system, in the universe and investable universe databases and in the risk management and portfolio review as well as portfolio construction materials.

ESG issues are a standing agenda item at the weekly Investment Committee meetings and during the weekly portfolio review meetings for the various listed equity strategies.

LEI 12. Aspects of analysis ESG information is integrated into

New selection options have been added to this indicator. Please review your prefilled responses carefully.

12.1. 投資分析のどの側面にESG情報を統合しているかを記載してください。

12.2a. ESG情報を適正価値/ファンダメンタル分析やポートフォリオの構築へと統合するプロセスについて、組織でのプロセスの一部となっている手法を選択してください。

12.3. ESG情報をポートフォリオの構築にどう統合しているかを説明してください。

  • We have established the material ESG-risk criteria at the sub-sector levels.
  • Our ESG-analysis is very focused on the operational management of the company, as well as its governance structures, internal control and e.g. accounting and tax practices.
  • Policy and regulatory issues facing companies are an important part of our ESG-analysis.
  • Company strategy is a very important aspect of analysis and in our view companies that thoroughly understand their main ESG-risks and have strong sustainability processes in place to address these, are much better positioned and resilient in the face of challenges.
  • Our portfolio construction process takes ESG into account; companies with some ESG-weakness (scoring "fair") have their position sizes capped in the portfolios for risk management purposes, while the companies scoring strongly on ESG, give conviction to the lead analyst / portfolio manager.
