01.2. Describe your reasons for choosing a particular ESG incorporation strategy and how combinations of strategies are used.

We have chosen to apply a negative screening on all our assets. This screening is based on UN Global Compact Principles.

Somme of our fixed income funds are SRI funds applying a Best in class approach.

A majority of our fixed income assets are managed on behalf of our first customer who is involved in integration ESG issues in the management of its assets. We set an investment limit for assets with the worst ESG ranking. They can't exceed 10% of annual investment flows.
