Optimum Asset Management has an ESG Committee in place, headed by our Chief Investment Officer. The ESG Committee is responsible for applying the Responsible Investment Policy. This Committee is in charge of integrating nonfinancial matters related to environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into the asset management process. Optimum Asset Management is of the view that such factors can maximize the risk-return relationship while having a positive societal impact.
One of our analysts has responsible investment responsibilities and reviews the ESG scores of the companies in the portfolio. The portfolio managers then use the information provided for sector- and company allocation.
