01.2. Describe your organisation’s approach to incorporation and the reasons for choosing the particular ESG incorporation strategy/strategies.

Screening: If a material ESG issue emerges relating to a sector, the industry will be excluded from our investment universe. For example we do not invest in companies whose predominant source of revenue is the sale of tobacco or the manufacture and sale of armaments.

Integration: We integrate ESG into our process by basing investment decisions on both financial and non-financial factors. Each situation and its potential impact is considered on an individual basis with material issues discussed by the portfolio management team as part of the investment decision making process.  Significant concerns are reflected by way of a discounted assessment of intrinsic value and in cases where the ESG issue is perceived as too great a risk, we may elect not to invest or divest an existing holding.

 

01.3. If assets are managed using a combination of ESG incorporation strategies, briefly describe how these combinations are used. [Optional]

Description

Negative screens by Sector/Product include:

Companies principally engaged in the manufacture and sale of tobacco. We believe the increasing focus on the externalities associated with tobacco companies (e.g. higher healthcare costs, organised crime) reduces the sustainability of earnings.

Companies principally engaged in the manufacture and sale of armaments or pornography.

Emerging Markets

We do not invest in companies head quartered in Emerging Market countries unless they have an ADR or GDR listed on a recognised Developed Market exchange such as New York or London. This is to provide an additional layer of disclosure around listing requirements and compliance.
