FI 14. Integration overview

14.1. Describe your approach to integrating ESG into traditional financial analysis.

For our Discretionary Portfolio Management ("DPM") investment process a "financial performance first and a best-in-class sustainability" approach is in place. This means that in case of similar scores on key financial performance drivers, the preference for selection in client portfolios resides on companies that offer the highest sustainability ratings. This selection methodology, which is based on exclusion and selection of investments should translate into portfolios that are above benchmark in terms of sustainability. The overall sustainability of the portfolio is monitored periodically (at least annually) to safeguard above benchmark levels of sustainability.
