01.4. Describe your organisation’s investment principles and overall investment strategy, interpretation of fiduciary (or equivalent) duties,and how they consider ESG factors and real economy impact.

Aurica´s conservative investment strategy approach includes:

  • minority investments, between 20% and 49% stakes
  • in solid companies with low levels of debt
  • unleverage investments
  • investments in any sector but Real Estate or Financial (and except the ones excluded in our Exclusion Policy)

Also, the investment strategy incorporates Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance and Business Integrity issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes. Also, we seek appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities in which we invest, and we include and apply an ESG framework to these companies, and an acomplishment roadmap if any risk is detected.

Aurica tries to implement new ESG matters detected to our portfolio companies. We believe these improvements affect directly to the future profitability of the investments, not only because of their intrinsic importance but also given their relevance to the investors, clients, and the society in general.

Circumstances generating conflict of interest are those in which there is an existing conflict between the interests of Banco Sabadell (BS), any of the companies integrated within BS Group (Commercial Spanish Law art. 42) or shared companies of BS Group, the Administrators or Managers of any of the previous entities and the obligations of Aurica towards any of its Limited Partners (“LP”).

Among other assumptions, it is understood that a conflict of interest is produced when a company where Aurica III has the intention of investing it is yet shared by any of the members of the Investment Committee and/or Aurica III Advisory Board members, or any of the LP’s (or by any other entity belonging to BS Group, to which the referred member or LP belongs to).

Likewise, it is understood that a conflict of interest will arise concerning those Investment Committee members and/or Aurica III Advisory Board members who have representation in another Private Equity Entity managed by Aurica Capital, in relation with the investment proposals in companies shared by this third Private Equity Entity.

More details about Conflict of Interest as per demand can be provided.
