Describe your approach to screening for internally managed active fixed income
We apply screens based on our IMAs with our clients. We also use ESG ratings from specialist ESG research providers to evaluate issuers. We supplement this with internal research.
Additional information. [Optional]
Our internal research adds colour to our understanding of the ESG process of the company. Companies with impressive ESG processes usually stand out and may be given a higher weight in our portfolio. ESG ratings are generally used to make sure the company is doing a reasonable job.
