Describe how the ESG information reviewed and discussed affects the selection decision making process.[OPTIONAL]
We ask external managers to answer our due-diligence questionnaire and our annual monitoring questionnaire when we select and review them.
Our questionnaire covers topics of ESG policy, ESG integration process, ESG implementation process, ESG review/reporting process, proxy voting policy, proxy voting process, proxy voting results, engagement activities.
After that, we review and analyze those information. We typically ask them to submit/report additional information like PRI's Assessment reports or their internal policies and so on.
Then, we set ESG scores on every external managers' products based on those information and utilize them when we select and review external managers.
