Perennial Value is a specialist active Australian equities manager, with a ‘value’ stockpicking investment style. The cornerstone of Perennial Value’s investment process is our proprietary, in-house research. We conduct independent first-hand research on all securities before their inclusion in our investment portfolios. We invest in companies that offer a strong balance sheet with low debt levels, a track record of paying reliable dividends and good quality management. As a signatory to the United Nations backed Principles for Responsible Investment, we have incorporated ESG principles into our investment processes. We have engaged with CAER and CGI Glass Lewis, broker research and other information to supplement our own analyst bottom up ESG research. We have also developed a proprietary ESG database which captures over 30 different data points of ESG data. We have also developed an in house ESG scoring system for each company under coverage.

When a company-specific ESG issue arises we will typically seek to engage with Company management on the issue.  If we have significant unresolved concerns in relation to the issue we will seek to escalate the issue by one or a combination of the following:

  • writing to Company management;
  • meeting with the Chairperson or Lead Independent Director; or
  • writing a formal letter to the Board of Directors.

If the issue remains unresolved, we will consider divesting our holding in the Company.
