Describe your organisation’s processes relating to sustainability themed funds. [Optional]
Our environmental / social theme funds integrate ESG considerations into the investment process in three ways.
- A strict theme definition by which we only invest in companies with clear and strategic exposure to the underlying environmental/ social theme (typically above 20%).
- Furthermore, we integrate ESG consideration in our assessment of management quality and business franchise. Investment managers use a variety of sources for this purpose.
- Systematic and theme-specific exclusions (eg weapons, coal etc.)
