Our investment philosophy and process is based on identifying sustainable business models, so integrating ESG issues is entirely consistent with our approach. As a consequence, responsible investment is a continuous and ongoing aspect of our investment policy which will change as new issues emerge.
We are continuing with our strategy of ESG training to key employees and there is tremendous overlap between this and their requirements to maintain their CFA charters so training has been taken up well.
In addition to this, we maintain an ESG database for companies within our universe. This database is updated annually.
