In general, for all asset classes, we prefer investment managers that are signatories of PRI or that are using similar investment principles for responsible investments. We also expect them to integrate sustainability into their investment process.
More specifically for public fixed income we expect our managers to adopt a process for companies that are in violation with UN Global Compact. This process should include monitoring, engagement or as a final option to exclude the company from their investment universe.
We don't want our managers to invest in controversial weapons or nuclear weapons.
We expect our managers to consider impact from climate change in all investment decisions and we expect them to avoid investments in companies where a large share of profits is coming from coal (exploration or power generation).
