FI 10. Integration overview

10.1. ESGを従来の財務分析に統合するアプローチを説明してください。

Troy carries out qualitative and quantitative analysis dealing with ethical concerns in relation to sovereign issuers.  The analysis centres on several environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.  ESG analysis is integrated into the research process at Troy for fixed income as with equities.  The objective of Troy’s funds to preserve capital must take into consideration material risks for each investment case.  It is within this context that we seek to address ESG factors as part of a wider set of factors that influence our decision to invest.  With the launch of the Trojan Ethical Fund in March 2019, our ESG analysis of fixed income has been bolstered by third-party research. Troy’s fixed income ESG analysis focuses on the issues which we believe pose the greatest risk to investors’ capital.  These include but are not limited to the following areas. 

  • The damage that ESG failings can have on a country’s reputation and its ability to issue debt, with particular attention to political stability, political rights and civil liberties.
  • The strength of the rule of law, particularly in relation to bribery, extortion and corruption.
  • Current account and fiscal balance, debt rating and outlook
  • The risk of fines or legal action relating to breaches of regulation and conventions relating to social standards of practice and discrimination.
  • The risk of fines or legal action relating to breaches of regulation and conventions relating to environmental standards.
  • UN and EU sanctions

10.2. 投資する債券の各種類に対してESG統合アプローチをどのように調整するのか説明してください。


We currently invest solely in US and UK government debt.  If we were to invest in corporate debt, ESG analysis would centre on issues that are company-specific, following the same framework as that used for ESG equity analysis.

FI 12. Integration - E,S and G issues reviewed

12.1. 組織の統合プロセスでESG問題をどのように検討するか示してください。





12.2. 組織の統合プロセスでE/S/G要因を検討する方法を詳しく説明してください。


ESG research on fixed income issuers held in the funds will be updated at least quarterly.  This is currently focused on sovereign debt since this is the funds' current fixed income exposure.  The updates centre on changes in the sovereign's outlook, breaches of/withdrawal from conventions, changes in stance from the current government towards significant ESG factors, changes in government following a general election and changes to third-party ESG scores for that particular sovereign.  Reference to new independent reports or events of significance for the relevant sovereigns will also be made.
