We utilize investment screening to eliminate companies from our portfolios who are primarily involved in sectors we consider to be unsustainable: tobacco, alcohol, gaming, pornography, nuclear power, military weapons and fossil fuels. 

From a positive ESG investment process we also prefer to invest in companies with one or more of the following qualities:

1. adherence to a high level of corporate governance

2. commitment to progressive environmental practices and to complying with environmental regulations

3. respect for their employees and the communities in which they do business

4. advocate progressive human rights practices when carrying on business in a repressive regime

Our investment process uses a unique synergy of financial analysis in combination with environmental, social and governance (ESG) analysis. Through this process we identify companies that we believe will generate a superior long-term return while minimizing risk. All securities must meet our ESG and financial criteria for selection. Once a company is confirmed as meeting our ESG criteria, a security is selected for the portfolio based on its fundamental merits as a “company” or business and its merits as a “stock” in terms of the share price and valuation. All investment decisions are based on ESG analysis, internal valuation models and our own investment thesis.

We assess companies ESG qualities using qualitative and quantitative analysis. Company performance and policy is evaluated in the following areas: corporate governance, employee relations, environmental performance, diversity, community relations, human rights and product sustainability. Companies that lag their peers are excluded from further analysis and investment. We use in-house expertise supplemented by third party research.

We eliminate companies from our investible universe who have poor corporate governance practices, human rights records or environmental performance.Companies who derive signifcant revenue from tobacco, military weapons, nuclear energy, pornography, gambling, or fossil fuels are not eligible for investment.

Our ESG screening model was developed in 2003 and is currently used to manage the funds for which we provide sub-advisory services: the IA Clarington Inhance Global Equity SRI Class fund (2009), the IA Clarington Inhance Canadian Equity SRI Class fund (2009), the IA Clarington Inhance Monthly Income SRI Fund (2009) and the IA Clarington Inhance Bond SRI Fund (2017). Prior to 2017, ESG screening was applied to the IA Clarington Bond Fund which was included in the IA Clarington Inhance SRI Portfolio funds until it was replaced by VCIM’s launch of the IA Clarington Inhance SRI Bond Fund. . 




Within each sector we evaluate company ESG performance to select companies who have good performance in diversity, employee relations, community relations or are introducing environmentally or socially beneficial products.

Our ESG analysis helps identify new ESG risk which potentially impact our portfolio. We undertake a process to assess and manage our exposure to each of these risks. We start by analyzing each company’s vulnerability and strategy for addressing the particular risk. Then we confirm our assessment by seeking clarification or greater detail on policies and practices from the company, independent third parties and through media monitoring. We review the company’s response, the findings of our analysis and any new information to determine whether further action is required. Such action may include ongoing monitoring of the company’s risk management process, filing a shareholder resolution or divestment.

The shareholder resolution process encourages greater communication between the shareholder and management. In most cases, once a resolution has been filed with the company, conference calls and face to face meetings are held with the shareholder to substantiate the basis for the resolution. This process allows the shareholder to hold detailed, in-depth discussions with management on the company’s approach to a particular issue.
