ESG Objectives

          We decline holdings in companies known to manufacture cluster munitions in violation of the international convention on cluster munitions. Some additional screens in certain areas (e.g. Charities team, segregated client mandates)
        
          As part of our due diligence and on-going 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.
        
          We promote RI by speaking at events, contributing to industry initiatives, engaging with policymakers and creating innovative products.
        
          We track ESG scores of external managers over time and continuously look to improve the integration of RI into our investments. Also, as part of our on- going monitoring, we ask the manager/houses for any developments in the area of ESG, such as new hires, adding to resources etc.
        
          We inform our external managers of our focus on and commitment to the PRI principles.
