Our due diligence and manager selection process considers ESG and responsible investing considerations holistically. Managers are selected for their ability to meet our broad range of investment objectives, but we do not set minimum or targeted ESG weights or scores that they are required to meet. Our sustainable investing due diligence process evaluates managers' firms for their policies, approach and commitment to sustainable investing. Our proprietary methodology evaluates their profile, resources and practices, resulting in a rating of strong, medium or weak for sustainability integration.
Describe how the ESG information reviewed and discussed affects the selection decision making process.[OPTIONAL]
ESG due diligence questionnaires and reports are available to all of our portfolio managers. Custom client mandates result in custom analysis of ESG factors including scores, weights, SDG alignment, etc.
