When building our investment universe, we screen out companies that have significant controversies.  Some of the controversies include non-compliance with norms, however, we do not specifically screen by norms.

Screening criteria was established based on discussions with clients and in-depth research.  Then, for many of the screens, we have performed backtests to determine their effects on risk/return. They are reviewed on an ad hoc basis and we will make ad hoc changes if issues arise.  The criteria is disclosed to clients upon request.
