07.2. For the roles for which you have RI oversight/accountability or implementation responsibilities, indicate how you execute these responsibilities.

The overall oversight for the responsible investment policy lies with the Vontobel Sustainability Committee, headed by Zeno Staub, CEO of Vontobel.

The ESG Investment Council is mandated by the VSC to implement the Principles for Responsible investments across business units. It meets on a monthly basis and decides about sustainability fund universes and major sustainability themes to be covered in different sustainability products. All members can include relevant topics in the meeting agenda. Each topic is discussed with all members having a chance to contribute to the discussion. If a decision needs to be taken, the Council's members take a vote. For every meeting, a protocol is written up that includes the decisions. The council defines the architecture of all ESG investment products (investment approach, universe, processes) and determines the applicable investment threshold and exclusion criteria.

Dedicated portfolio managers are responsible for the management of sustainable products. Investment analysts, partially in cooperation with the portfolio managers, select those equities and bonds conforming to the relevant ESG standards.

07.3. Indicate the number of dedicated responsible investment staff your organisation has.
