Quoniam's Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) Committee, comprising the CIO, the SRI coordinator, two portfolio managers focussing on responsible investing and the CSR strategist, have the oversight and responsibility of all SRI aspects in the investment process, i.e. definition of the screening policies, selection of quantitatie metrics and ratings used in investment analysis (integration), and defining engagement and proxy voting policies. Within the management board, the CIO carries responsibility for SRI, while the CEO has responsibility for CSR and overall responsibility.
All portfolio managers are responsible for applying the criteria selected by the SRI Committee in the day to day application of the investment process and to communicate them to clients and prospects.
The SRI team of the mother company Union Investment (UI) is repsonsible for implementing engagement and proxy voting policies as instructed, e.g. in the Quoniam Funds Selection SICAV.
The SRI coordinator and the dedicated staffs are supervising the process and reporting to the SRI Committee on a regular basis about results. They are also working on initatives for improvement and organising the exchange with the engagement team at UI.
