SAM 08. Percentage of externally managed assets managed by PRI signatories

08.1. Describe how you ensure that best RI practice is applied to managing your assets


          We require new investments in non-listed property managers to participate in the GRESB benchmark and to reach 4 or 5 start status in this benchmark over time.


          In listed equity, we require new and existing external managers to contractually agree to implementing carbon reduction targets and the Inclusion Policy. In the case of an external manager not willing to agree to such terms, this can lead to the contract being terminated and the assets moved to another external manager that is willing to implement a APG's Responsible Investment considerations.

08.2. Additional information. [Optional]

Scope and process

As of 2019, external managers contracted on by APG to manage assets on our behalf, have to comply with the Inclusion Policy. This policy prioritizes issues for engagement which we relay to the external manager managing the assets on APG’s behalf. The manager has to commit to conducting the engagement and reporting back to APG.


All external managers in Listed Equity have implemented this policy and are starting to report on activities, progress and results following from the engagements.
