During the appointment processes of external managers, Idinvest Partners deploys relevant initiatives to ensure the adoption of a responsible investment approach throughout its Funds of funds and Mandates activities. Namely, Idinvest:
• Communicates its ESG policy (including exclusion) to GPs
• Requires the GP to provide a report on ESG matters on a yearly basis through the firm’s ESG questionnaire
• Encourages the GP to adopt a responsible investment approach and if possible, to become a PRI signatory
A standard clause relating to responsible investment is included in side-letters concluded during the appointment processes. Its aim is to communicate Idinvest Partners’ commitments towards responsible and the firm’s expectations relating to reporting and climate-change risk management.
