Corporate (non-financial)
Negative/exclusionary screening
Positive/best-in-class screening
Norms-based screening

04.2. Describe your approach to screening for internally managed active fixed income

Ashmore’s funds and segregated accounts has a specific investment mandate which sets out the parameters for investment. Within the Corporate Debt theme Ashmore is able to screen client portfolios to meet client requirements for geographic, sector and company specific restrictions. Company specific restrictions may include securities which meet clients’ own criteria.

Examples of investment areas where screening of portfolios can be offered based on (or informed by) client requirements (using recognised investment industry identifiers and coding into Ashmore’s portfolio management system) include alcohol, animal / food products, armaments manufacturers or dealers, gambling, pornography and tobacco.

Ashmore screens for, and prohibits, investment in companies manufacturing cluster munitions banned under the Oslo Convention. Ashmore seeks to comply  at all times with all sanctions imposed by applicable government authorities, and also, at a geographical level, screens across all investment themes for countries which are on the United Nations Security Council and EU/UK Sanctions and the US Office of Foreign Assets and Control (OFAC) lists.
