(C) Implementation: Integration

FI 10. Integration overview

10.1. Describe your approach to integrating ESG into traditional financial analysis.

Financial performance is the first criterion and guiding principle for investment selection in most investment services concepts. After that, a best-in-class sustainability approach is to be followed. This selection methodology is applicable for both equity and bond investments and intends to translate into portfolios that are at or above benchmark in terms of sustainability.

In order to facilitate the best-in-class sustainability selection, a sustainability indicator has been developed exclusively for ABN AMRO. This indicator provides transparency on the level of sustainability of a certain investment security based on a large number of ESG measurements, exposure of companies to controversies and lack of relevant policies in high risk sectors and certain countries and/or geographies.

10.2. Describe how your ESG integration approach is adapted to each of the different types of fixed income you invest in.
