In selecting external managers LPPI explains the context in which we are working (as an asset manager and provider of pooled investment facilities for public sector pension funds). We also explain any specific thematic RI priorities and explore how these can be accommodated and supported within the mandate they will manage.
Describe how the ESG information reviewed and discussed affects the selection decision making process.[OPTIONAL]
Manager responses to the LPPI RI DDQ prompt follow-on questions as part of gaining comfort around a base level of commitment/competence and an appropriate level of alignment with our beliefs and requirements. Where managers explain that they are in the process of developing their RI/ESG approach this will be investigated/noted and requirements may be set for achieving given milestones as part of a supportive monitoring relationship.
