For the roles for which you have RI oversight/accountability or implementation responsibilities, indicate how you execute these responsibilities.
We do not have dedicated RI professionals in our firm. The Head of Equities is responsible for driving the Responsible Investment Strategy. In this role, he provides oversight on the implementation of responsibilities. Furthermore, he ensures that investment analysts exercise their voting authority responsibly, in line with Afena Capital's Proxy Voting Policy.

As long-term investors we understand the importance of taking ESG factors into account in the determination of our valuations of prospective investments. We believe, therefore, that the inclusion of "responsible investment" considerations is an integral part of the job description of every investment professional in our employ. We don't currently believe that a dedicated (interpreted as meaning "in addition to the regular investment analysts") responsible investment member of staff is necessary at present.
