01.2. 組織が実施しているESG組み入れアプローチ、および、特定のESG組み入れ戦略を選択している場合はその理由を説明してください。

The choice of ESG incorporation strategies developed by Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France) was based on the three following drivers:

  • A combination of strong ESG and financial convictions with the view to enhancing the risk/opportunity analysis for each given stock
  • The desire to develop innovative analysis and investment tools for our clients that complement those already developed by Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France), with a single aim in mind: to offer high performance investment solutions that also support companies engaged in tackling sustainable development issues as they grow.
  • The capacity to adapt and meet new ESG-related demands from institutional clients including detailed specifications defined by the client.

​The ESG incorporation strategies decisions are ruled by three complementary parameters:

  • the development of Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) funds: these funds have a fully and systematic ESG integration, screening and/or ESG engagement within their investment process and seek for a positive impact on the sustainable development. In 2017, SRI equity strategies developed by Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France) apply to 2 open-ended funds (Edmond de Rothschild Euro Sustainable Growth and Edmond de Rothschild Tricolore Rendement), with cumulated assets of €1.654 billion under management, and two institutional mandatesaccounting for €2.030billion in AUM.
  • the mainstream integration of ESG risks and opportunities within the management of our assets: fed by the acquired experience cumulated with the development of SRI funds, true laboratory of our ESG expertise, this dimension is progressively implemented (within our asset classes, geographical coverage of investments or thematic management) and is focused on one key condition: the materiality of ESG factors.
  • The progressive development of investment strategies with the search of strong positive environmental and/or social impacts.
  • ​The implementation of ESG strategies is driven by an in-house ESG research and management team under the direct leadership of the CIO, and under the responsibility of the overall management teams targeted by, at least, one ESG incorporation strategy. Besides, this implementation is controlled by the Internal Control department.

 

The map of our ESG incorporation strategies applied is the following:

  • Screening alone (27% of our equities AUM):

Negative Screening: 100% of our equity assets under management apply a negative screening approach (used systematically across all the asset management company's funds) based on a list of banned countries + exclusion of companies whose business is in any way related to cluster bombs and anti-personnel mines, compliant  with the Oslo Treaty and the Ottawa Convention signed by France. Within the breakdown requested in LEI 01.1., 27% of our equity assets developed a negative screening only

 

  • Screening and integration (69% of our equity AUM):

39% of the AUM of our equity funds are involved in an implementation of ESG integration within the traditional financial analysis with the active involvement of the management teams on concrete ESG integration projects led by the in-house RI team.  

18% of the AUM of our equity funds apply a positive screening with ESG integration for 2 of our european mandates.

The Edmond de Rothschild Tricolore Rendement fund is an ESG engagement fund that combines an advanced ESG integration process based on an ex-post ESG screening with an ESG Engagement policy. This funds represents  13 % of our equity assets

 

  • Thematic and (negative) screening ( 3% of equity AUM):

Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France) manages a thematic equity fund on healthcare: Edmond de Rothschild Fund Healthcare (a sub fund of the Luxembourg-regulated SICAV which is approved by the CSSF, managed by Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (Luxembourg) and for which Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France) is the sub investment manager). This fund invests at least 60% of its net assets in securities issued by companies operating the healthcare sector (biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, medical technology, medical diagnosis, hospital and healthcare center management, and other medical services) as well as companies marketing these products or services.

 

  • All three strategies combined ( 1% of equity AUM):  

One of our SRI equity funds, Edmond de Rothschild Euro Sustainable Growth  has developed a best-in-universe positive screening approach, but also integrates ESG within its financial analysis and focuses on the securities operating in the fields of the energy transition, health, research  digitization and sustainable mobility, allowing better synergies between financial and ESG beliefs. The portfolio managers search to invest in companies with positive environmental and social  impact like Wessanen, Naturex, etc

 

01.3. ESG組み入れ戦略の組み合わせを使用して資産を運用している場合、ESG戦略の組み合わせをどのように使用しているかを簡単に説明してください。 [任意]

1) Screening & ESG integration: The Edmond de Rothschild Tricolore Rendement fund combines an ex-post ESG analysis with an ESG Engagement policy, based on a structured and traceable investment process.

For the rest of the open-ended European equity funds, they apply a negative screening based on banned countries and the anti-personnel landmines / cluster bombs and, their fund managers benefit from a systematic and explicit access to the ESG research within their management tools as well as anESG integration process notably based on the implementation of concrete ESG integration projects. .

For the mandates: away from the negative screening, they apply a positive screening according to a "Best-in-class" approach". The screening is done according to our in-house ESG analysis based on dialogue with the companies and an ESG integration within the financial analysis.

2) Thematic and (Negative) Screening: For the Edmond de Rothschild Fund Global Healthcare, beyond the thematic, the fund applies the same negative screening and normative exclusion than EdR Tricolore Rendement..See LEI 01.2

Exclusion of any investments related to Anti-personnel mines (APM) and Cluster Bombs

All of our equity assets under management apply a negative screening approach (used systematically across all the asset management company's funds) based on an  exclusion of companies whose business is in any way related to cluster bombs and anti-personnel mines, in accordance with the Oslo Treaty and the Ottawa Convention signed by the French Government.

 

Screening and Exclusion of a list of banned countries

Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France) has drawn up a list of banned countries for which it is necessary to obtain prior approval from Internal Control and Compliance Department before making any investments. Nearly 30 countries appearing on this list are subject to an embargo put in place by the United States and Europe or have been subject to financial sanctions or to asset freezes. In order to enforce this screening, pre-trade blocking limits have been set up in the Dimension front office tool 

スクリーニング実行者

説明

For our equity funds, it concerns one open-ended SRI funds and two institutional mandates.

For the SRI open-ended fund -Edmond de Rothschild Euro Sustainable Growth, the RI specialist team grants the stocks an internal SRI rating. These ratings are based on a seven-point scale ranging from CCC to AAA and are determined by aggregating the company's global results on different ESG (Environment-Social-Governance) criteria, as per the rating matrix designed by the RI specialist team. Extra-financial criteria are allocated different weightings according to the company's sector or industry: however, the overall rating is determined on an absolute basis and is not relative to the sector performanceTo enter  the portfolio, a stock must have a minimum rating of A

04.2. スクリーニング基準の設定方法、基準の見直し頻度、基準の変更を顧客や受益者に通知する方法について説明してください。

POSITIVE SCREENING

Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France)'s rating methodology and the matrix for extra-financial analysis were drawn up by our RI fund management/research team following a survey of existing data frameworks (UN Global Compact, OECD or ILO-led conventions and official texts). A particular attention is paid on Global Compact participation and related controversies: this norms-based  compliance watch is not applied according to a systematic exclusion but as one of the components  of our ESG analysis.

Our SRI rating model was built with weightings that differ from the sector-based ESG criteria which take the specificities of each sector or industry into account.

Beyond the exclusion of companies whose business is in any way related to cluster bombs and anti-personnel mines, there is neither a sector or thematic-driven exclusion/inclusion bias, nor a geographic (within the euro zone) or market cap bias in Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France)'s SRI funds.

The ESG ratings of companies covered by our in-house extra financial analysis are updated every 18 to 24 months.

Our 3 main research pillars (Environment, Social and Governance - ESG) are not set to change. However, please note that :

  • the former 4th pillar of analysis “Stakeholders”has been merged in the 3 ESG pillars in 2017.
  • within these pillars, the extra-financial criteria or weightings can be modified according to their relevance or enhanced following the identification of new sustainable development issues.
  • These changes are communicated to the clients in the SRI Transparency code and the monthly factsheet.

 

NEGATIVE / EXCLUSIONARY SCREENING

 

  • Exclusion of any investments related to Anti-personnel mines (APM) and Cluster Bombs

All of our equity assets under management apply a negative screening approach (used systematically across all the asset management company's funds) based on an  exclusion of companies whose business is in any way related to cluster bombs and anti-personnel mines, in accordance with the Oslo Treaty and the Ottawa Convention signed by the French Government.

 

  • Screening and Exclusion of a list of banned countries

Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France) has drawn up a list of banned countries for which it is necessary to obtain prior approval from Internal Control and Compliance Department before making any investments. Nearly 30 countries appearing on this list are subject to an embargo put in place by the United States and Europe or have been subject to financial sanctions or to asset freezes. In order to enforce this screening, pre-trade blocking limits have been set up in the Dimension front office tool 

COMMUNICATION REGARDING CHANGES ON OUR ESG RESEARCH DATABASE

In terms of external communications regarding changes made to Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France)'s ESG research database, all relevant publications are updated regularly on our website in the "Responsible Investment" section (http://www.edmond-de-rothschild.com/site/France/en/asset-management/our-expertise/socially-responsible-investment), accessible to all stakeholders and clients. In addition, Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France) launched in 2013 a new publication dedicated to SRI, "The SRI Chronicles". This public newsletter can also include information on any changes made to the ESG/SRI investment process.

Finally, in the context of Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France)'s management of SRI mandates, the Investment and Extra-Financial Investment Committees organised for institutional investors provide an appropriate venue for disclosing any information or discussing any changes made to Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France)'s SRI research or investment process..

Positive screening process for our SRI funds and mandates

In addition to the controls that are carried out in-house, the strength of Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France)'s ESG research process is further evidenced by our management of SRI institutional mandates which require:

  • Strict controls on portfolio management related to the deployment of SRI research according to ESG specifications requested by the client.
  • External portfolios reviews carried out by extra-financial rating agencies:  
  •     1) ​Vigeo-Eiris reviewed one of the portfolios managed by Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France) on behalf of two institutional clients. This process resulted in Vigeo-Eiris granting Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France) one of the highest ratings relative to the client's other portfolio managers.
  •     2) On behalf of an institutional mandate, Trucost measures the carbon footprint of the SRI portfolio managed by Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France).
  • The production of specific reports several times in the year with a focus on ESG analysis / portfolio management: these also includes information on how we exercised our voting rights during Shareholders' meetings.

Besides, the ESG ratings of companies covered by our in-house extra financial analysis are updated every 18 to 24 months. The ESG rating can also be updated following to the current news and events, the controversies or still company meetings:

The ESG ratings for our SRI funds managed under an ESG positive screening strategy are determined on a dynamic basis: controversies can cause ESG ratings to be downgraded, depending on the severity and frequency of the issue.In the event of a severe controversy, the company’s ESG rating is downgraded; the fund manager-analysts will then put the stock on watch in order to review details and assess the company’s response to correct the situation. If a company’s rating falls below A, the stock is removed from the portfolio in a period not exceeding 90 days.

Generally speaking, disinvestments can be driven by a change in the fund managers’ financial or extra-financial convictions. Meeting the company’s management can alter our view of the company, cause the up/downgrade of its ESG rating, or even trigger an exit from the portfolio due to a low rating.

As far as information on SRI portfolios movements is concerned, new SRI portfolios holdings and exits are recorded in the SRI funds’s monthly financial and extra-financial reporting, where the funds managers may mention any ESG-related issues in the comment section, where relevant.

NEGATIVE / EXCLUSIONARY SCREENING PROCESS FOR ALL OUR EQUITY FUNDS

Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France) has implemented a policy excluding stocks involved in the production of cluster bombs and anti-personnel mines from all of the UCITS/AIF and mandates that it manages.

The list of stocks involved in the production of cluster bombs and anti-personnel mines is drawn up at least once a year by the RI team, in cooperation with the Chief Investment Officer. This list is based  publicly-available lists (e.g. PGGM, Norwegian Pension Fund, Australian Pension Fund, etc.) and internal research.

At the Voting and Engagement Committee, which meets at least twice a year, this list is submitted by the RI investment team and, reviewed and validated as appropriate by the Committee. The Committee's minutes include the validation of the list and its composition. It is circulated to Risk Department so that   the front office tool limits are updated accordingly..

This blocking limit applies to all of the portfolios managed by Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France).

Besides, Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France) has drawn up a list of banned countries for which it is necessary to obtain prior approval from Internal Control and Compliance Department of the Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France) before making any investments. As a result, this list of banned countries has an impact in the authorisation of our investment for the equities, corporate and sovereign debt.

Nearly 30 countries appearing on this list are subject to an embargo put in place by the United States and Europe or have been subject to financial sanctions or to asset freezes.


LEI 06. Processes to ensure fund criteria are not breached

06.1. ファンドの基準に違反がないことを確認するために組織が使用しているプロセスを記載してください。

06.2. ファンドのスクリーニング基準に対する違反が判明した場合、これらの違反を是正するために従うプロセスを説明してください。

Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France)’s Risk Control Group has set up specific risk controls via “Dimension”, our front/middle/risk management tool, applicable to the Edmond de Rothschild Euro Sustainable Growth fund:

  • the tool is set to check that every stock within the portfolio has a SRI rating
  • the tool operates on a pre-trade and  post-trade basis to prevent the potential inclusion of a poorly-SRI rated stock in the portfolio (i.e. rating < or = to BBB). 
  • every day, the Risk Control Group checks on a post trade basis that all portfolio holdings still have SRI ratings of "A" or above and therefore, that any stock with an inferior rating due to a downgrading is going to be sold within one month, as soon as practicable in the best interest of the unitholders.

Furthermore, Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France)’s Internal Control carries out an annual review of the investment process, including the ESG research methodology applicable to these SRI funds (as well as for the SRI mandates process) . This control of the process involves checking the factsheets and the in-house SRI ratings for a sample of stocks  in the SRI open ended funds and mandates portfolios: every stocks within these SRI portfolios must have an ESG rating. 

Finally, the transparency and thoroughness of our ESG research methodology is audited by third parties such as EY France (within the new SRI labelling process launched  and supported by the French Finance Ministry and awarded for the equity SRI fund Edmond de Rothschild Euro Sustainable Growth), or still by institutional investors in the course of reviewing the SRI mandates that we manage on their behalf.  

CONTROL PROCEDURES DESIGNED TO ENSURE THE COMPLIANCE OF THE SCREENING AND EXCLUSIONARY PROCESS FOR ALL OF OUR EQUITY FUNDS

  • Exclusion related to Anti-personnel mines and Cluster Bombs

The stocks within the forbidden list for antipersonnel landmines and cluster bombs cannot be included in the portfolio as “Dimension” – our front office tool - operates on a pre-trade basis and will block the transaction.

  • Negative / Exclusionary screening

Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France) has drawn up a list of banned countries for which it is necessary to obtain prior approval from Internal Control and Compliance Department of the Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France) before making any investments. As a result, this list of banned countries has an impact in the authorization of our investment for the equities, corporate and sovereign debt.

Nearly 30 countries appearing on this list are subject to an embargo put in place by the United States and Europe or have been subject to financial sanctions or to asset freezes.

Some countries are formally prohibited (5 countries under embargo, i.e. Cuba, Iran, Syria, North Korea and Sudan), while others are placed under a close monitoring: this triggers an analysis on a case by case basis by the internal control and compliance department which authorizes or prohibits the investment within the day.

In order to enforce this screening, systematic pre-trade blocking limits have been set up in the Dimension front office tool: this pre-trade block limit is set in all cases for the equities.

  • A Eurozone SRI/ESG selection fund with a combination of themes

The SRI equity fund Edmond de Rothschild Euro Sustainable Growth  is a combination of ESG screening and multi thematic approach. It seeks to pick stocks with interesting growth prospects which also strive to apply best sustainable development principles. The investable universe is defined through the selection of stocks with minimum ESG rating of A combined with a selection of growth stocks that operate principally on market segments that are typically exposed to sustainability issues: energy transition, healthcare and population, digitalisation, education & research…

From this investable universe, we conduct financial and stock market analysis and construct a portfolio of around 40-50 positions. The fund's managers-analysts also regularly monitor indicators on the portfolio's extra-financial impact. Thus, the fund currently focuses on different indicators as carbon emissions (carbon footprint/intensity/exposition), “green impact”, rate of staff absenteeism or injury frequency, proportion of women on executive committee and whether companies are signatories to the UN's Global Compact. These indicators help track the fund's extra-financial performance compared to its benchmark index: they have been  disclosed in a new document available in French version on our website and entitled “Performance Extra-Financière : l’exemple d’Edmond de Rothschild Euro Sustainable Growth”. The contents of this document also includes the fund’s voting activity.

Edmond de Rothschild Euro Sustainable Growth  received the new French SRI  label after an audit of its process and transparency by EY in September 2017.

 

  • A global thematic fund focused on the Health sector

Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France) also manages a socially thematic equity fund on healthcare :Edmond de Rothschild Fund  Healthcare*. This fund invests at least 60% of its net assets in securities issued by companies operating the healthcare sector (biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, medical technology, medical diagnosis, hospital and healthcare centre management, and other medical services) as well as companies marketing these products or services. *a sub fund of the Luxembourg-regulated SICAV which is approved by the CSSF, managed by Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (Luxembourg) and for which Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France) is the sub investment manager
