For a detailed description of all screening criteria used by Quoniam, please refer to FI 01.2. Data used to decide on (non-)compliance with these criteria is provided by established ESG data providers, as stated in FI 02.2.
As laid out, some clients / mandates may have chosen to use their own screening methodologies or permissible investment universe definitions, in which case Quoniam applies such criteria as instructed. A Quoniam defined exclusion list of companies with activities in the production of controversial weapons, i.e. cluster munitions and anti-personnel landmines, key biological and chemical weapons components, biological and chemical weapons, incendiary weapons using white phosphorus and nuclear weapons, is applied to all mandates irrespective of client preferences.
