10.2. Indicate which methods are part of your process to integrate ESG information into fair value/fundamental analysis and/or portfolio construction.

10.3. Describe how you integrate ESG information into portfolio weighting.

ESG issues are considered in the course of the fundamental research we undertake on all companies - whether owned or not owned in the portfolio.  ESG issues can impact our portfolio weighting decision, for example we may reduce the target weight of a particular stock should it still be considered attractive if there is particular ESG factor that is of concern and quantifiable. 

Where an ESG issue is not quantifiable then the company will be excluded from the portfolio.  


10.4. Describe the methods you have used to adjust the income forecast / valuation tool

Within our models we assess the earnings and cost drivers and make adjustments accordingly. 

Example: A company producing a carbon emitting commodity

We assess the long term revenue drivers of the company.  This would include taking into account the long term demand as a function of the world changing to less carbon emitting commodities and the impact this will have on revenue.  We would also include our forecasted price for coal for example, and where relevant this would also impact revenue.  Where appropriate we would also include the cost of site remediation.  These factors are included within our model and thus directly impact our valuation of the company.
