During 2019 we sent out (and received back) a RI Questionnaire to all asset managers on the list asking them if they were a PRI signatory, consider the UN GC in their investment process, controversial weapons (and other) exclusions, voting policy and engagement policy in place (example attached).
We do not currently apply quantitative analysis for ESG issues. In our qualitative assessment we use a standard ESG-specific questionnaire for all manager selection. This includes questions about exclusions, sanctions that are observed, compliance with UN GC principles, active ownership (voting and engagement) policy and practices. We also require that the manager is a UN PRI signatory, or becomes so in 2020.
We have further communicated to external managers that we will be evaluating our criteria as of 2020.
