Provide a brief description of how your organisation includes responsible investment considerations in your investment manager selection, appointment and monitoring processes.
We formally incorporate ESG factors into our due diligence process. We believe this is crucial to harnessing the potential for value creation, as well as in protecting the interests and reputations of ourselves and our clients. The ESG due diligence findings are formally documented in investment recommendations, with potential concerns flagged for consideration by the investment committees. We subscribe to RepRisk in order to improve our ESG due diligence and on-going risk monitoring. RepRisk is a global leader in the provision of business intelligence on ESG risk and provides ESG news flow and company ratings based on media reports and other public sources external to the company.
