As an active portfolio manager, we invest on behalf of our clients and our main objective is to maximise value added on a risk adjusted basis in a quantitative and rule based investment process. Our approach to responsible investing is based on international standards that we support and promote. We foster responsible investment as a key tool to support long-term sustainable business and economic development. In this context we consider ESG factors to have both financial and nonfinancial impact, and we employ such factors in addition to purely financial data in our investment process. We encourage companies to promote responsible business practices and good corporate governance in order to maximise their value in the long term.

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]

Key elements of our investment policies to RI (as listed in SG 01.2) are:

Formalised guidelines on environmental, social, and governance factors: We are using clearly defined data points from recognized sources to measure sensitivity to these factors at the security level, and analyse/manage it at the portfolio level.

Screening/ exclusion policy: We are using a ruled based negative filter on controversial businesses practices.

Engagement policy: We are engaging with companies on SRI issues, addressing themes identified as material. See engagement agenda in LEA 01.6.

(Proxy) voting policy: We are systematically casting votes based on our proxy voting policy.

Quoniam is acting as a portfolio manager in a variety of different setups. The policy components listed above and in SG 01.2 are applied to the Quoniam Fund Selection (QFS) SICAV and wherever Quoniam is mandated by its customers to execute them.
