Describe how the ESG information reviewed and discussed affects the selection decision making process.[OPTIONAL]
The answers above relate only to those funds being evaluated by the CIO office due diligence team for investment managers with ESG mandates. While we do not create our own ESG scores and weights for external managers, we may use a 3rd party ESG data provider to run ESG scores of each strategy before we bring it onto our platform and pair those quantitative metrics with a qualitative assessment of ESG integration, intentionality, and reporting via our CIO due diligence process. We also reference ESG ratings of funds/ETF which is primarily driven by a quantitative model for screening a broad universe of index based strategies.
