02.2. Provide a brief description of how your organisation includes responsible investment considerations in your investment manager selection, appointment and monitoring processes.

We have a dedicated ESG DDQ based on the PRI template. We use this DDQ as part of the general due diligence process for the selection of external managers. We also have a score card and rating system to further assist in better understanding the conclusions of the due diligence on ESG.  Responsible investment considerations in manager appointment relate mostly to good governance aspects, and proxy voting policy in the case of listed equity.  Monitoring at this point is also dealing mostly with governance factors.

02.3. Additional information. [Optional]

Governance factors are regularly reviewed and considered throughout all stages, particularly during selection and monitoring. Additionally, we undertake conversations with managers on an ad-hoc basis as well as at annual meetings and other instances.  For listed equity, we continuously monitor ESG metrics, particularly through data provided by Bloomberg.
