(A) Implementation: Screening

FI 04. Types of screening applied

04.1. Indicate the type of screening you conduct.

Select all that apply
Corporate (financial)
Corporate (non-financial)
Negative/exclusionary screening
Positive/best-in-class screening
Norms-based screening

04.2. Describe your approach to screening for internally managed active fixed income

PM CAPITAL has a policy of exclusion when we feel that a company or sector can not as a result of its primary business activities be considered to be a Responsible Investment.

The exclusion of a stock or sector has a negligible effect on the size of the investable universe. PM CAPITAL is typically looking to hold 55-65 investment positions in its portfolios at any time within it's Fixed Income portfolio. Some examples of sectors that are screened from our investable universe include tobacco manufacturers and weapons manufacturers.

While we exclude certain sectors, we acknowledge that this may in the short term affect investment performance on a relative basis. However, in the long term, we believe that the investment performance of quality business franchises will ultimately prevail and deliver above average shareholder value. Many people believe a negative screening process forces an unacceptable trade-off between ethical criteria and investment returns. For PM CAPITAL, research of sustainability factors within the context of an effective company risk management framework plays a key role in achieving our primary aim - that is, to maximise long-term returns for investors.
