It is publicly available that GPP, as investment manager, became a signatory of the United Nations Principles Responsible Investment in 2008. Since that moment, the Responsible Investment policy has been continuously in process of development and communicate it to our clients in the periodic meetings we celebrate with them all.
Strictly speaking, the document above indicated might not be considered as an official SRI policy, however it is a communication paper sent to the whole universe of our institutional clients, explaining all the details of our SRI policy. Moreover, it appears in a public web with access not only to our clients but to the general public. All the publications can be found in the link previously shown:
The document comes written in Spanish, so let me sum up the key points shown in the newsletter:
1. Firstly, the document reviews the origin of the SRI initiative by United Nations, and as a consequence of our commitment with this issue.
2. Secondly, it explains our approach by focusing on several points such as the integration of ESG criteria in the investment process, exclusions based on Rules in Conduct of Defense, extension of the ESG analysis to our externally managed assets, the proxy voting policy and the increase of resources dedicated to the development of our SRI policy.
2. Finally, it also makes a review of the specialized providers hired by our company to supply our clients with the highest quality information.
Related to our Proxy voting policy, even we have developed a strong procedure, the policy is not publicly available.
It is also useful and remarkable events organized to provide our clients and other individuals (evenif they are not clients) information related to the SRI policy implemented in the portfolios. You can consult it in the following link:
