The Investment Philosophy establishes that allocation decisions should be based on fundamentalist analysis, focusing on the markets where the area holds deep knowledge. The assumption of risks is conditional on the comprehension and the capacity to measure them. Currently, the policy does not establish formal guidelines regarding the approach of the ASG factors, however, the fundamentalist analysis of the invested assets incorporates these issues into the analysis.

In relation to the management of structured funds and the Managed Portfolio of the FGTS, the mechanisms provided in the Investment Policies, regulations, applicable legal norms and qualitative evaluation tools are adopted, such as questionnaires and/ Or audit work carried out by independent legal advisors. In Addition, according to the instruments governing the managed funds and their respective integralized assets, it is also carried out an analysis of mandatory information that is forwarded by the companies invested in socio-environmental and governance issues.

          For new models of variable income evaluation, the factor integration methodology is being improved, so that the method employed can evaluate and measure the impact of ESG factors throughout the analysis process. This method should involve three phases: (i) research, (ii) quantification and (iii) valuation. The first phase involves the collection and analysis of information regarding ESG factors and the verification of which ones are relevant to the valuation of companies in the sector to be analyzed, involving macroeconomic information and themes, sector-specific value drivers, and drivers of specific values ​​of companies; The second, a crucial point in the evaluation process, consists of transforming the information obtained in the previous phase into raw material for valuation, involving steps such as determining the most appropriate indicators and metrics to quantify ESG impacts, separating recurring or episodic events, identification of the most appropriate cash flow lines to reflect the impacts, estimation of the probability of the impacts materializing, and assessment of the estimated time horizon for the impact; In the third, the information is inserted in the valuation models that use the Discounted Cash Flow method, with the objective of finding the Net Present Value of subjects that until then were not priced and, finally, the company's fair value adjusted to the ESG issues.
