Pengana primarily applies an ethical screening policy to its ethical portfolios.
Good corporate governance is one of the key elements we assess, when applying our fundamental research process to the companies we invest in. Within our investment process, we favour those companies that can demonstrate a transparent approach to financial and corporate governance related disclosure, particularly where they are listed in emerging markets. In our view, good governance is a key driver of generating shareholder value over the long term.
We believe incorporating ESG factors into the investment decisions will result in superior performance over the long term.
