If your organisation does not integrate ESG factors into investment decisions on your externally managed assets, explain why not.
Our exetrnally managed commodity exposure is a very small component of overall asset allocation and this is achieved via non-physical ETFs.

The Jupiter Independent Funds Team take analysis of underlying investment managers on a case-by-case basis. They will only select managers that they feel share they and their clients' investment values whilst also best serving their clients' objectives. As such, if the team feel that the prospective or existing underlying investment manager's approach to governance does not sufficiently reflect their own high governance standards or could negatively affect the investment proposition for their clients, this will weigh on their investment decision.
