MetallRente has a long-standing dedication towards Responsible Investment (RI) and the consideration of ecological, social and good governance criteria (ESG). Since the founding of our multi-employer pension organization in 2001, the commitment, that all assets fully managed on our behalf must take responsible investment principles into account, is included in our memorandum of association.
MetallRente offers a broad range of different pension schemes for employers to choose, including direct insurance, benevolent funds and the MetallRente pension fund. From all our pension plans, assets from two plans invest to varying degrees in the MetallRente.Fondsportfolio, a portfolio of funds exclusively set up for our organization, in which assets are fully managed on our behalf. Hence, our RI and ESG strategy and all policies following our responsible investment approach only apply to the assets in our MetallRente.Fondsportfolio.
The implementation of ESG considerate investment refers to all steps of the asset management process: starting with our strategic asset allocation (SAA), actual investment decisions and portfolio construction up to reports that allow for continuous monitoring and portfolio optimization.
