01.4. Describe your organisation’s investment principles and overall investment strategy, interpretation of fiduciary (or equivalent) duties,and how they consider ESG factors and real economy impact.

Renaissance Property Securities investment principles are founded on our belief that each property security has an underlying value and that securities become mispriced relative to this value and relative to each other due to irrational market behaviour including excessive optimism or pessimism towards individual securities or sub-sectors of the property market. Our strategy is to exploit such market inefficiencies by employing and active, value based investment style. Our approach is bottom up investment research into individual securities with a focus on forecasting future income generation potential of each security. Our aim is to outperform our benchmark over rolling 3 to 5 year periods.

ESG factors that we consider to be relevant to property securities are considered alongside financial measures in order to develop a complete view of the risk/return characteristics of each security. The ESG issues most relevant to property securities depend on the asset type, location, life cycle phase, corporate structure, and other individual company characteristics.

Our clients are wholesale institutional clients and have entrusted us to integrate into our investment process those ESG considerations that we consider to be relevant for the property securities market.

01.5. Provide a brief description of the key elements, any variations or exceptions to your investment policy that covers your responsible investment approach. [Optional]

The key elements of our investment policy are summarised in SG 01.4 above. Our ESG policy contains this summary and also states that our responsible investment approach is one of engagement, voting and stewardship. We regularly engage directly with management of companies we invest in on behalf of our clients. We aim to vote on all resolutions offered for vote by companies and our votes are always cast in the best interests of our clients. Finally, we recognise, support and promote best practice on ESG issues that we see as pertinent to the property securities market. Our particular areas of interest are listed in our ESG Policy and are as follows:

  1. Corporate governance associated with property trusts and companies.
  2. Energy efficiency of buildings and building activity (eg. capital expenditure, energy performance ratings).
  3. ESG disclosure for smaller property companies.
