03.2. 組織が実施しているESG組み入れアプローチ、および、特定のESG組み入れ戦略を選択している場合はその理由を説明してください。

  • Screening alone: Due to choices made by our organization to not invest in the companies which produce or distribute controversial weapons and neither participate in speculation on “essential food commodities” prices. Other screening strategies are applied on specific accounts to meet client demand
  • Screening + Integration: Due to the choice made by our organization to partner with Generation IM since 2007 to set up and distribute to our clients an ESG integration fund which has also to apply our group exclusion policies. Besides, we integrate ESG factors aside of Financial factors in our systematic factor based strategies.
  • Screening + Thematic: Due to choices made by our organization  and due to financial implications on companies’ expected returns, thematic strategies linked to overall demographics have been implemented into our Public fund "LOF Golden Age" which is a thematic fund on ageing population.

03.3. ESG組み入れ戦略の組み合わせを使用して資産を運用している場合、ESG戦略の組み合わせをどのように使用しているかを簡単に説明してください。 [任意]

Most of our screening strategies are relative to our two Group Exclusion policies regarding the ban on investments in companies linked to production and distribution of controversial weapons and the ban of investment in financial instruments directly linked to “essential food commodities”. This negative screening is imposed to all our fund managers, for some specific funds other ESG strategies such as other screenings,  integration or thematic are applied on the screened investible universe.

06.2. スクリーニング基準の設定方法、基準の見直し頻度、基準の変更を顧客や受益者に通知する方法について説明してください。

Screenings criteria are established in 4 different ways:

  1. Applying our corporate exclusion policies (controversial weapons and "essential food" commodities). A list of companies involved in cluster weapons, depleted uranium, white phosphorus and anti-personal mines manufacturing or distributing is put together by our SRI team with the help of external ESG data provider and is quarterly updated.
  2. Applying criteria to track down Child labor. Child labor is examined directely in the company or through its suply chain. The information is updated on a monthly basis.
  3. Applying screenings based on major breaches of UN Global Compact principles. In order to implement this screening we use a serie of controversy indicators which scales the number, the impact and the seriousness of incidents a company is going through. This screening can be applied through all ESG concerns or through specific E, S or G issues. This information is weekly updated.
  4. Applying screenings using our proprietary ESG scores. Lombard Odier has created an in-house expertise to build customized ESG scores and developed the capacity to test them. The score customization enables us to meet the client values in our scorings. Lombard Odier has set a standard ESG score using its propriatary ESG/CAR methodology to implement screenings when no client guidelines indicate a perticular scoring methodology. The score and its components are updated on a daily basis and enables Lombard Odier to propose different fields of screening: Environment, Social, Governance in a static view, or Consciousness, Actions and Results in a more dynamic view. Any combination of these fields is also available.

We notify clients when changes are made through monthly, quarterly or bi-annual SRI dedicated reports, including information related to scores, positive, negative and norm-based screening. Detailed comments are systematically provided with our reports, together with research and more detailed explanations about companies that went through significant changes.

LEI 09. Types of sustainability thematic funds/mandates

09.1. 組織が運用している、サステナビリティをテーマとするファンドやマンデートの種類を記載してください。

09.2. 組織でのサステナビリティをテーマとしたファンドのプロセスについて説明してください。 [任意]

Lombard Odier believes that demographics is one of the major explanatory factor that determine economic evolution over the long-term. Following this principle it has identified aeging population phenomenon as the most relevant demographic sustainable trend worldwide. Investors can invest in this theme through our equity fund called LOF Golden Age . This fund have required a specific expertise to identify relevant investment universes. Investment teams, SRI team and a thematic dedicated scientific advisory board (gathering high level academic, industry and finance backgrounded people) work together to define and update the thematic investment universes according to road maps and latest innovations.

Therefore, companies are elligible to the LOF Golden Age if they bring solutions to ageing population or give more comfort to our seniors. Financially this can be translated in having a significant share of their revenues or profits coming from customers age 55 or more what ever business they are in. "Healthcare" is obviously the most important sector involved in this theme, but others such as "leisure" and "household & personal products" can also be important.

The portfolio managers with the help of our financial analyst will then pick the most promising companies within the above defined investible universe and build a relevant risk diversified portfolio.

Fund managers have access to the ESG information produced by the SRI team and can take it into account when questionning the companies regarding their exposure to non-financial risks.

Moreover, Lombard Odier has developed since 2007 a partnership with Generation IM that manages our fund "LOF Generation Global". The fund focuses on long-term investment and integrate sustainability research within a rigorous fundamental equity analysis framework. It integrates economic, environemental, social and governance themes with broad industry trends, identifying potential investment candidates. After price assessment, it focuses on valuation, quality and conviction.

10.2. 補足情報。 [任意]

For dedicated SRI funds and mandates we systematically applies E,S,G analysis.

For the other funds, depending on the sensitivity of the company's sector to ESG issues or the importance of a controversy affecting it, fund managers will try to assess the ESG risk in their final investment decisions. ESG information issued by the SRI team is available to help them to make their assessment.
