The decision to restrict investments in companies associated with the production, use or distribution of anti-personnel landmines or cluster munitions was made by CI Investments in recognition of the prohibitions contained within the United Nations Anti-Personnel Landmines Convention and the United Nations Convention on Cluster Munitions. These exclusions recognize the potentially severe damage that can be caused during and after the use of anti-personnel landmines and/or cluster munitions.
This exclusionary criteria will be reviewed on an annual basis and in alignment with review of CI Investments' Responsible Investment Policy. Furthermore, an updated list of restricted investments is provided to all in-house portfolio management teams and external investment subadvisors every quarter by CI Investments' Compliance Department.
CI Investments does not currently have a formal process for notifying clients and/or beneficiaries when changes to the screening criteria are made. However, clients may obtain information and updates on CI Investments' screening criteria by request.
