Based on the definitions provided for this section of the questionnaire, we have responded with both "screening" and "integrated". EDM takes a risk-based approach to ESG evaluation. Across all of its strategies the firm examines and weighs environmental, social  and governance challenges which can create undue risk to investor capital. Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria are based on the concepts of sustainable development and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), additionally exclusions are decided on a case-by-case basis in the investment team meetings.

EDM Investment team sets or revises goals for responsible investment and EDM also review performance against its objectives for responsible investment. Chief Investment Officer (CIO), Investment Committee, Portfolio managers, Investment analysts and dedicated responsible investment staff, all of them have oversight and implementation responsibilities for responsible investment to ensure that EDM’s objectives and values are maintained in all its business pursuits.

The exclusionary screening is the same for fixed income as in listed equities.

EDM factors ESG issues into the Firm's routine evaluation processes, avoiding companies EDM believes to pose outside ESG risks that can negatively impact the Firm's results as investors. 

EDM's investment process is characterized by in-depth research, analysis and knowledge of target companies. It uses a rigorous approach to identify quality companies that should be capable of generating above average growth on a sustained basis and it is reflected in concentrated portfolios and essentially high risk aversion.

EDM needs to identify material Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) risks and opportunities of investee companies. This approach offers a broader and complementary assesment of companies in addition to information provided by the traditional fundamental financial analysis.

Following its commitment to responsible investment and the integration of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors, EDM has adopted a policy that exclude companies deriving their main revenues from controversial weapons, pornography and gambling.

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。

As signatories to the PRI, EDM factors ESG issues into our evaluation processes, avoiding companies we believe pose outside ESG risks that can negatively impact our results as investors.  EDM focuses on investing in companies it deems not only creditworthy, but that are also well-run with regard to their ESG exposures.

EDM’s investment team broadly incorporates ESG-related research, particularly as it creates economic risk, into the standardized Credit Reports the team produces.  These reports are shared between portfolio managers and analysts through formal meetings and through ongoing interaction in our open office environment. Constant communication of ideas and results allows for the free flow of questions and supports the maintenance of high research standards.  

As a portfolio manager, EDM has a professional duty to act in the best interests of its clients and to exercise due diligence in its investment process. EDM believes that Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors can be incorporated into its investment and decision-making processes in line with its fiduciary duties.

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 analysis is integrated into security weighting decisions and also, portfolio construction decisions. There are no material differences in the ESG integration approach across the Firm's corporate (financial) and corporate (non-financial) holdings.

10.3. 補足情報 [任意]

EDM focuses primarily on corporate credit and uses a similar ESG integration approach across the Firm's public and private debt strategies.  However, as our private debt strategies focus on smaller, middle-market companies, there are certain broader industry exclusions, such as controversial weapons, pornography and gambling.
