01.4. Describe your organisation’s investment principles and overall investment strategy, and how they consider ESG factors and real economy impact.

Ossiam’s investment strategy, identify clear performance drivers/risk reduction mechanism to be put at the core of the portfolio investment process.  ESG factors are then considered in several different ways :1. ESG is thought as a risk indicator that  complement usual market-based risk indicators.2. ESG is thought as a performance signal.3. ESG targeting is the core of the strategy, as could be for example carbon reduction targets or other measurable economic impact  (i.e. gender equality).4. ESG is thought as an overlay.

Most of the time the approaches above do overlap. But on a general basis, Ossiam starts the design of new investment strategies by looking at the best combination of financial and ESG factors to achieve the final goals. The choice of the investment universe, the region, the asset class and the format also play a great role in determining the type and the ambition of the ESG implementation. Finally, the real impact in the economy has to be considered and assessed through clear, systematic and verifiable indicators with respect to a pre-determined benchmark. In addition, Ossiam follows a voting policy based on Sustainability Voting Guidelines.
