Metzler Asset Management GmbH has a position for ESG integration. This expert coordinates and processes the ESG integration centrally for the portfolio management and also belongs to a special ESG Board, where sustainability topics are regularly discussed.
All fundamental oriented portfolio managers carry out – similar to analysts – evaluations of markets, sectors, issuers and securities. In our view, it is thus inevitable that they carry the ultimate responsibility for their decisions.
The Compliance Office at Metzler is responsible for monitoring and controlling sustainability efforts, the extent to which set targets and associated measures are achieved or implemented, and for coordinating Group-wide efforts to achieve sustainable business operations. It is in constant dialogue with all business units in order to coordinate internal and external communication. The Compliance Office reports directly to the Board of Management.
Service providers: MSCI ESG Research, ISS-oekom, Sustainalytics and BMO Global Asset Management deliver ESG analysis and respective reports.
