FI 10. Integration overview

10.1. ESGを従来の財務分析に統合するアプローチを説明してください。

NCRAM has a strong commitment to responsible and sustainable practices in investing client assets entrusted to us. With regard to client investing, we believe that consideration of sustainability is congruent with our Strong Horse investment philosophy. We incorporate Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors when analyzing an issuer’s sustainability and investment prospects. As we evaluate an investment opportunity, we consider whether the company acts in a sustainable way with regard to the environment and with regard to their employees and other constituents. We also weigh their corporate governance with regard to how they treat shareholders and how they treat bondholders. We engage with issuers when we have ESG concerns. We believe that this helps us to invest in stronger companies and improving credits.

 

NCRAM became a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI) in 2013. NCRAM launched an ESG Global High Yield Strategy in 2018.

10.2. 投資する債券の各種類に対してESG統合アプローチをどのように調整するのか説明してください。

社債(非金融)

ESG considerations are a standard part of our investment process. Portfolio managers and analysts continually evaluate the management of the issuers in our portfolios and the issuers we are considering for investment. As we evaluate the management, we consider whether they act in a sustainable way with regard to the environment and with regard to their employees and other constituents. We also weigh their corporate governance with regard to how they treat shareholders and bondholders. We believe that consideration of sustainability helps us invest in stronger companies and improving credits, and avoid defaults.

 

NCRAM research analysts include a summary of an issuer’s strengths and risks with regard to ESG factors in new-issue or other introductory credit reports. To augment our internal research, NCRAM has engaged Sustainalytics to provide external research on ESG factors. Analysts and PMs consider those factors in their credit analysis and assess whether the strengths and risks are priced into market yields and spreads. Existing positions are continually monitored by the research analyst and also are formally reviewed during periodic portfolio reviews among the portfolio manager, CIO and credit analyst. Should we assess that the company’s activities may not reflect our ESG principles, the holding will be re-assessed. Our CIO supervises our investment process, including the consideration of ESG factors.

NCRAM’s dedicated high yield analysts perform the vast majority of the research utilized in the management of high yield portfolios. Analysis of ESG factors is based on both direct communication with the issuer as well as secondary sources. NCRAM has also engaged Sustainalytics to provide external research on ESG factors.  NCRAM analysts will synthesize this information and include a summary of an issuer’s strengths and risks with regard to ESG factors in new-issue or other introductory credit reports.  Credit reviews also include an analysis of ESG factors. Analysts and portfolio managers consider those factors in their credit analysis and assess whether the strengths and risks are priced into market yields and spreads. Existing positions are continually monitored by the research analyst and also are formally reviewed during periodic portfolio reviews among the portfolio manager, CIO and credit analyst.
