01.4. Describe your organisation’s investment principles and overall investment strategy, interpretation of fiduciary (or equivalent) duties,and how they consider ESG factors and real economy impact.

Aspect believes that responsible investment is a multi-faceted concept which can mean different things to different people. A given investment manager’s interpretation of the term is likely to be influenced by (among other things) the sub-sector of the investment industry in which a firm operates (e.g. private equity vs. hedge funds), the investment strategies pursued and their objectives, the asset classes traded, and investors’ expectations.

Taking these factors into account, Aspect has identified three elements to its approach to responsible investment: (i) ESG integration, (ii) market impact, and (iii) Corporate Social Responsibility. Aspect's approach to each of these elements is described in detail in the Responsible Investment Policy. The policy also addresses Aspect's overall approach to compliance with each of the PRI's six principles.

01.5. Provide a brief description of the key elements, any variations or exceptions to your investment policy that covers your responsible investment approach. [Optional]

Aspect has in place a Conflicts of Interest Policy and a Conflicts of Interest Register. The policy sets out the procedures Aspect has in place in order to identify and manage any actual or potential conflicts of interest which may arise between Aspect and its clients, or between clients of Aspect.

Once an actual conflict has been identified, Aspect will record that conflict in the register and will manage that conflict by taking all reasonable steps to prevent the conflict from constituting or giving rise to a material risk of damage to the interests of its clients.
