For Private Equity Investments we typically require from our partners the incorporation of ESG aspects in their risk assessment. This can be achieved with the majority of our investment partners.
For Listed Equities: when we negotiate investment management agreements or side letters for investments, we try to include a provision that Suva is a signatory of the UNPRI.
For Listed Equities as well as Private Equity we evaluate how RI-considerations are addressed in the investment process and portfolio construction. Our expectation is that managers incorporate an assessment of the risk and opportunities stemming from environmental, social and governance issues in their investment decisions.
We carefully analyse how ESG information is used in the investment decision making process of managers. For example, if we see that a manager rejects, directly or indirectly, ESG considerations, this will negatively affect the assessment of the manager.
