ASR Vermogensbeheer's SRI policy is applied to all the assets managed by ASR. It distinguises between:
1. Companies (equity and fixed income) and countries internally managed or externally managed but for which ASR has the capability to determine the investment criteria as it is the case in mandates
2. Other externally managed investment structures where ASR cannot determine the investment criteria
In the first case, ASR SRI policy is required to be fully implemented. In the second case ASR will require minimun criteria as stated in the Code for Responsible Investing from the Dutch Association of Insurers, but will always aim via engagement, side letters or any other available means to apply as much of the ASR SRI criteria as possible.
