Provide a brief description of how your organisation includes responsible investment considerations in your investment manager selection, appointment and monitoring processes.
External managers we use are met regularly. In the meetings managers' activity, strategy and actions related to responsible investing are discussed. We require our external managers to be signatories of UNPRI in equity and fixed income classes. If we outsource a portfolio's management to external manager, we agree on ESG incorpration in due course.
For your externally managed pooled funds, describe any mechanisms in place to set expectations as part of the appointment or commitment process.
Expectations are set in manager meetings that are held regularly both before and after investing. Also written material can be used.
