Unless stated otherwise, this document will apply to Columbia Threadneedle Investments in the EMEA and APAC regions only. Data provided reflects our holdings as at 31 December 2016.
All AuM breakdowns, organisational information and other quantitative information relating to our responsible investment activities throughout this document are subject to uncertainty. This is due to: definitional discrepancies, differences in our internal data and management systems and UN PRI categorisations, and the range of dates covered in the reporting period versus those best captured in our system.
This applies to, for instance: asset class mixes and distinctions within asset classes, emerging and developed market classifications, distinctions between external and internal management, types of ESG integration approaches, the definition of fund of funds, manager of managers, sub-advised products.
Efforts have been made to capture the best available data, which has been tailored and approximated to meet PRI guidelines as far as possible.
Due to the small percentage of our externally managed assets (2%) we have not distinguished between different types of asset class to which this applies. We also have a negligible proportion of passive investments, and are otherwise a dedicated active house: hence, these have not been included.
