We find value in being associated with these firms as they publish insightful research focussing on key matters which could potentially impact on the investment cases of the companies we invest in.
At Afena Capital, we believe that Responsible Investing enhances the depth and breadth of the investment research process and assists in the consideration of a wider range of risks and opportunities within the universe of companies in which we invest in on behalf of our clients. As such, we believe that the integration of ESG factors into the investment decision making process delivers long-term investment performance for our clients.
We have adopted two approaches as the pillars of our Responsible Investing strategy:
ESG integration into our investment process with a view to helping our analysts make more informed investment decisions
Being active share owners by undertaking voting and, where appropriate engagement activities
We believe that following the above Responsible Investing strategy enhances the depth and breadth of our investment research process and helps us to consider a wider range of risks and opportunities within the universe of companies we invest in on behalf of our clients.
