The Trustees take a holistic view in aligning their Sustainable Investing Beliefs towards the Fund’s investment activities. There is a clear recognition that each of the three factors: Environmental, Social and Governance “ESG” play an important role in driving the long-term value of the Fund’s investment portfolio. The Trustees believe that as a long term provider of responsible capital, the Fund should exercise its stewardship responsibilities effectively and be an agent of positive change. This involves engagement and collaboration to help businesses and markets adopt and transition to best practices and sustainable business models.
The Trustees aim to integrate ESG factors and stewardship in all investment processes and decision making. The Trustees have developed an ESG Policy to assist them in applying their investment strategy and beliefs with respect to ESG issues, including climate change and stewardship.
