(C) Implementation: Integration

FI 14. Integration overview

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

The sustainability team rates 2500 issuers with an ESG rating of 0-100. Each issuer is rated on 70 to 100 individual indicators. These indicators form the basis for integration of ESG issues into traditional financial analyses. Storebrand seeks to tailor the ESG input to Portfolio Managers according to the unique set of risks and opportunities that are relevant for portfolio companies.

14.2. Describe how your ESG integration approach is adapted to each of the different types of fixed income you invest in.

Coprorate risk is focused heavily on Governance issues.
