SG 04. Identifying incidents occurring within portfolios

04.1. Indicate if your organisation has a process for identifying and managing incidents that occur within portfolio companies.

04.2. Describe your process on managing incidents

Our portfolios are monitored on a daily basis using multidimensional risk management tools, allowing to identify any extraordinary event. Furthermore, our teams are updated about market news through several sources and have direct communication with companies to address any topic that is deemed to be material. Analysts and PMs work together in a single, open space, which allows for continuous interaction and for immediate discussion when a special circumstance arises. Incidents are assessed one on one to undertake any action on the portfolios. Investment teams have set up stop loss and sell rules that might activate depending on the impact of the incident and its implications for the company’s perspectives.
