For more than ten years now we have been demonstrating that active management can be reinvented to reconcile profitability with responsibility. Active portfolio management, based on thorough fundamental analysis including direct engagement, is the keystone of the Buy & Care investment strategy.

The strategy, developed by PPT, has now matured to a point where it may be useful to restate its three founding principles. They have proved particularly reliable in the long term and through changing financial and economic cycles.

1.          We do not invest in a stock but in a company. Every effort will be made to visit the companies and increase our understanding of their business model and their senior managements’ ability to ensure its longevity.

2.          The main aim is to create added value for our investors in the medium and long term. We are proud to have advanced active management as a whole, particularly by working with a longer time horizon that requires strict discipline in the fundamental analysis.

3.          We build concentrated portfolios. Our deep analysis strengthens our convictions and reduces portfolio turnover and transaction fees, while also enabling us to deviate from the benchmarks.

Describe the identified transition and physical climate-related risks and opportunities and how they have been factored into the investment strategies/products.

Two specific in-house managed Fund do take climate-related opportunities particularly into account as they are dedicated to the theme:

EIC - Renewable Energy Fund

EIC - Energy Infrastructure Fund

01.7 CC. Indicate whether the organisation has assessed the likelihood and impact of these climate risks?

Describe the associated timescales linked to these risks and opportunities.

The pace and impact of the energy transition is probably the most difficult to assess, but we developed specifically the above mentioned products to accelerate it and to profit from the opportunities linked to renewable energy and new energy infrastructures in the mid to long-term.

01.8 CC. Indicate whether the organisation publicly supports the TCFD?

SG 03. Conflicts of interest

03.1. Indicate if your organisation has a policy on managing potential conflicts of interest in the investment process.

03.2. Describe your policy on managing potential conflicts of interest in the investment process.

Internal guidelines regarding trading execution - procedure relative to discretionary mandates and funds. In particular, the procedure concerns the avoidance of conflict of interests, which could be raised in the context of an investment activity, such as fair allocation of IPOs, best trade execution etc. The scope is to guarantee client impartiality and to avoid favoring our own interests or interests of others in the detriment of the clients’. The application of these principles is verified on a random basis during the transaction and portfolio reviews.

Other principles of ethics present in the Swiss legislation have to be respected by PPT’s employees at large. Besides the avoidance of insider trading, another illustration relates to the prevention of front running.

Finally, we would like to conclude on this important topic that integrity and transparency are very much part of our company’s culture. Our objectives as client’ advisors must be in line with those of the recommendations carried out in the exclusive interest of our clients.
