04.2. Describe your approach to screening for internally managed active fixed income

The same process used for equity investments is followed. Therefore, the process of identifying critical companies, engaging with them and possibly putting them on an exclusion list is carried out by the SVVK-ASIR directly. This also means that the exclusion list that Suva adopts as a basis for its decisions is the one established by the SVVK-ASIR.

Suva's screening approach further consists of abiding by the legal sanctions and embargos decided upon by the Swiss government against countries, institutions and companies. For example, trading in new debt issued by certain Russian financial, non-financial corporates and SSAs need to be reported to Swiss Authorities.

We fulfil furthermore country minimum ESG standards by only investing in countries that fulfil the minimum requirements for inclusion in the major global developed and emerging market indices.
