Troy’s policy on Responsible Investment has a particular focus on the fundamental integration of environmental, social and governance factors into Troy’s research process, Troy’s confirmation of its support for the principles of to the Stewardship code, the firm’s policy on engagement and on (proxy) voting, and Troy’s status as a signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment.
The policy also references Troy's standalone policy on conflicts of interest.
Troy’s Responsible Investment policy covers all assets managed by Troy Asset Management and is rooted in our long investment horizon and focus on capital preservation.
The policy was implemented in 2017 and is intended to be broad enough to capture all assets managed by Troy Asset Management.
The policy has been approved by Troy’s executive committee and is reviewed on an annual basis.
The sole exception is the screening and exclusions policy which only currently applies to the assets managed within the Trojan Ethical Income Fund and Trojan Ethical Fund.
