Systematica is a signatory to the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (“UN PRI”) and the Standards Board for Alternative Investments (“SBAI”). Both entities are committed to develop robust frameworks for the deployment, implementation and observance of ESG considerations across the industry. It is Systematica’s belief that its participation and promotion of the principles and guidelines issued by the UN PRI and SBAI are a demonstration of its commitment in incorporating ESG considerations in its investment philosophy.

Further, Systematica employees (e.g. Portfolio Managers & Investor Relations staff) participated in several industry ESG related conferences.
