Sionna’s objective is to provide downside protection and deliver long-term, above-average returns by applying a disciplined value approach.  ESG factors contribute to our fundamental research and help to inform our analysis as part of our bottom-up investment approach. A proper evaluation of a company’s exposure to ESG factors helps Sionna to determine what long-term returns to anticipate from a company, what level of risk to account for and what margin of safety to demand on our investment. By understanding the key drivers of a business and what obstacles may challenge our investment thesis, we can properly manage risk and remain good stewards of our clients’ capital.
