Describe how the ESG information reviewed and discussed affects the selection decision making process.[OPTIONAL]
We ask external managers to answer our due-diligence questionnaire and our annual monitoring questionnaire when we select and review them.
Our questionnaire covers topics of ESG policy, ESG integration process, ESG implementation process, ESG review/reporting process, proxy voting policy, proxy voting process, proxy voting results and engagement activities.
After that, we review and analyze the information. We typically ask them to submit/report additional information like PRI's Assessment reports or their internal policies and so on.
Then, we set ESG scores on every external manager's products based on the information and utilize them when we select and review external managers.
