In the selection and monitoring of external managers we monitor on our 5 P's: planet, performance, process, people and product. In the first P we take into account ESG. 

The first part of this process is with the selection of the managers. When selecting new managers, the RI team writes an opinion of the RI aspects of the new manager, including their:

1. Commitment to responsible investment (among which the demand of being UNPRI signatory or showing proof of RI-policy equal to it)

2. Integration of ESG factors in investment processes and research

3. Evidence of this ESG integration with solid examples

4. Engagement

5. Exclusion policy

 

In the continuous monitoring of external managers we send an ESG-questionnaire every year, regarding the progress of the managers in implementing the 6 principles and of the implementation of ESG in their investment policy and decisions. Based on the answers on this questionnaire, we have a conversation with the managers about topics that we might want to elaborate on.

Managers are scored a green, orange or red score on the basis of this information. Red scoring managers should improve within two years, or their dismissal will be discussed between PME and MN.

17.2. Additional information.

Securitised finance: On behalf of PME, MN rates all appointed external managers on ESG: ESG considerations are explicitly incorporated in MN's manager selection& monitoring processes. The manager's are assessed on five factors; parent, people, process, performance and planet (ESG). Therefore responsible investment considerations are part and parcel of MN's continuous assessment of managers. All investments are monitored via the 5 P's as mentioned above, of which planet is one. We send out an annual questionnaire on ESG related matters, including carbon, to all our managers, which is used to rank them on their ESG score (planet). We update our scoring quarterly when if changes occur which might affect the scoring.

When MN starts the search for an external manager on behalf of PME it takes ESG into consideration. Every manager that responds to a Request for Proposal has to include how it deals with responsible investing.
