Mercy uses an internally created ESG diligence checklist for all asset classes, regardless of size. We engage managers in discussions to understand their ESG policy and how they integrate ESG factors into the investments process.
We share and integrate some of the questions from the PRI Hedge Fund DDQ. We also encouraged our consultant, Aksia, to consider ESG and incorporate it into their research. They have become a UNPRI signatory and include analysis in their research recommendations, and have committed to enhancing their ESG effort.
