For all corporate-bond investments, exclusionary screening is applied based on 120 international norms and conventions. The data stems mostly from MSCI ESG Research. In cases of “very severe controversies”, i.e. serious infringements of these standards, companies are excluded from our investment universe.
Upon client request, we also take other aspects into account in the investment process, such as negative/best-in-class screenings drawn from data provided by oekom research.
