Provide additional information relevant to your organisation's monitoring processes of external managers.
As part of our due diligence and ongoing monitoring we will review their integration of the principles and practices of responsible investing. This includes review of the ESG policies and governance of potential managers, identifying how effectively they integrate ESG factors into its investment decisions, and how the fund communicates ESG information to its investors. Throughout the life of an investment, we monitor identified ESG risks and work with managers to ensure effective oversight.
Additionally, where funds are part of the impact proposition, we look to monitor and review the quality and consistency of the investment approach they take, as well as the measurement and reporting of social/environmental outcomes.
