04.2. Describe your approach to screening for internally managed active fixed income

As a first step of the screening process, we reviews potential deals against applicable laws and regulations, the approved Investment Mandate or Investment Management Agreement or the Watch List (cognizant to risks from any investments in companies operating in tobacco, asbestos, ozone depleting substances etc.).  Please note that this is not a mechanical screening or exclusion process but helps the team deploys its resources in an efficient manner and does not spend time on investments that are facing severe headwinds and/or major topics of contention.  

Thereafter, the team will undertake full ESG assessment of over 150 factors which results in the team to collate data of ESG matters as per the internally devised ESG management system.  This allows the team to fully understand the ESG risks or opportunities that a particular investment presents.
