We use ESG for investment analysis in stock picks and decision making processes vis-a-vis derivatives strategies, shorting, exposure and tail risk management.
We use ESG research to manage potential risks and ensure capital preservation.
We use ESG factors mainly to evaluate the quality of corporate governance and we try to avoid investing in companies which have bad track record and evidence of non-prudent and dishonest management, decision making, etc.
Russian market investment environment is rather stagnant and we are holding to a conservative strategy focused first and foremost on capital preservation and reducing market volatility.
We focus on governance principles, such as company’s leadership, executive pay, audits, internal controls and shareholder rights, especially minority shareholders rights which are often neglected by many Russian companies
Neglecting prudent corporate governance and minority shareholders' rights impacts debt sustainability of the company and its dividend policy
Our mission is to act in the best interests and incorporate company strategy and corporate governance of top-management and controlling shareholders
Bad corporate governance may lead to high debt burden, no dividends, and finally negative share price performance of the company
Use of put options on benchmark market index decreases fund volatility and allows to get better returns rather than long only funds deliver in Russia
