GTC developed Sustainable and Impact Investing Guidelines to provide transparency around how we approach ESG, faith-based and other mission driven considerations. GTC, together with GIM, have committed to incorporating the Principles throughout the entirety of our organization, including Private Wealth, Endowment and Foundation, and Investment Management business lines. GTC believes that ESG factors could positively impact the risk and return profile of our investments to varying degrees across asset classes, geographies, market capitalizations, and time horizons.

GTC approaches sustainable investing by focusing on:

  • Advancing the field through research. We will analyze the ecosystem of ESG data providers, seek to understand the risk and return ramifications, make adjustments to our investment process where feasible and appropriate, and publish thought leadership
  • Building expertise, capabilities, and investment solutions that meet our client's financial and ESG or faith-based considerations; and
  • Being genuine in our desire to advance our clients' objectives, both financial and beneficent

01.5. Provide a brief description of the key elements, any variations or exceptions to your investment policy that covers your responsible investment approach. [Optional]

SG 03. Conflicts of interest

03.1. Indicate if your organisation has a policy on managing potential conflicts of interest in the investment process.

03.2. Describe your policy on managing potential conflicts of interest in the investment process.

Glenmede has structural barriers to prevent some common conflicts and also has a conflict program to identify others at the employee level. For example, GTC does not accept 12b-1 fees or other incentive compensation from the companies placed in its clients' portfolios. Neither GTC nor GIM accept rebates for providing liquidity. GTC does not act as an underwriter, does not sell research to outside firms, or charge its clients a management or custody fee on assets invested in affiliated mutual funds which pay management fees to GIM. GTC personnel are not compensated to use GIM products. Both GTC and GIM employees are required to report conflicts (including relationships with people in the financial services industry, clients, or vendors to the firm) on an annual basis. Other conflicts inherent in the business, for example, the use of soft dollars, gifts and entertainment and outside business, are subject to policies and procedures.
