IFI 02. Due diligence policies and/or procedures for the selection of external investment managers

02.1. Indicate if you have due diligence policies and/or procedures in place for the selection of external investment managers in inclusive finance that take their approach to the following responsible investment issues (PIIF Principles) into account:

Actively supporting retail providers to innovate and expand the range of financial services available to low income people (Principle 1)

Integration of client protection in investment policies and practices. (Principle 2)

Treating investees fairly with appropriate financing that meets demand, clear and balanced contracts, and fair processes for resolving disputes. (Principle 3)

The inclusion of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) issues in investment policies and reporting. (Principle 4)

Active promotion of transparency in all aspects. (Principle 5)

Striving for a balanced long-term social and financial risk-adjusted return that recognises the interests of clients, retail providers and investors. (Principle 6)

Collaborating to set harmonised investor standards that support the further development of inclusive finance. (Principle 7)

02.2. Additional information. [Optional]

We did not make any new investments in inclusive finance in 2016. PIIF is presently not specifically referred to in our contractual agreements/investment mandates in our externally managed portfolio. Limited Partnership Agreements in Private Equity Funds focusing on inclusive finance have been signed prior to the establishment of PIIF. We do however track which of our investments in the inclusive finance space are managed by PIIF signatories.
