When selecting external managers we score managers on five criteria. In three of the five criteria ESG considerations are included: 1. ESG integration in the organization, 2. ESG integration in the investment process and 3. the remuneration policy. Managers are scored based on their qualifications on these three ESG aspects.How important is responsible investment for the organization and how well is it embedded in the organization. What is the level of ESG integration in the investment process? (i.e. is it part of the standard investment process, are portfolio managers educated on this topic etc..) For the remuneration policy we score on governance, transparancy and alignment of interest. The better the results the higher the score for a manager.The criteria used for selecting external managers are the same criteria on which managers are monitored continuously. As part of our review process all aspects / criteria are discussed with the manager again.
