SG 01. RI policy and coverage


01.1. 責任投資アプローチをカバーする投資ポリシーを策定しているかどうかを明示してください。

01.2. ポリシーの構成要素/種類と対象範囲を示してください。


01.3. 投資ポリシーが以下のどの項目をカバーしているか明示して下さい:

01.4. 組織の投資原則および全体の投資戦略、受託者義務(または同等のもの)の解釈、ならびに、ESGファクターおよび実体経済の影響をどのように考慮に入れているかについて説明してください。

Our top priority is to do our best for our clients, by maximising their portfolio returns and protecting their interests, whilst also driving benefit for society. To select investments we employ a consistent and disciplined approach that focuses on intensive bottom up research. As part of our investment process we assess many factors including ESG considerations for their potential to materially affect a company’s performance.

As a boutique investment firm we recognise that, because in most cases we will not hold significant positions in investee companies, it can be difficult to encourage changes in management attitudes and behaviour purely by exercising client voting powers alone. Instead, we have adopted a more flexible approach and we engage with company management and boards as and when we believe it will be of most benefit.

Using information derived from a combination of in-house research, dialogue with the company and external sources we identify the key issues and discuss them directly with company management, in order to affect change.

01.5. 責任投資アプローチをカバーする組織の投資ポリシーの重要な構成要素、バリエーション、例外事項を簡潔に説明してください。[任意]

There is one exception to our policy whereby a segregated client has opted for their own custodian to vote on their behalf.

03.1. 組織として、投資プロセスにおける潜在的な利益相反を管理するポリシーを策定しているかどうかについて明示して下さい。

03.2. 投資プロセスにおける潜在的な利益相反を管理するポリシーについて説明してください。

SVM believes that it manages conflicts of interest effectively.  As an investment boutique with a focus on equity management, this reduces the diversity of client mandates and potential for conflicts between clients.  The primacy of client interests is deeply embedded in SVM’s corporate culture, with the firm being led by a Board of investment professionals.  All the investment team are members of professional bodies with high ethical standards and codes that reflect the importance of serving client interests and good stewardship.  The strong culture, active review by senior management, Conflicts of Interest Committee and the SVM Board are all reasons why SVM believes it has effective management and controls in relation to conflicts of interest.

A record will be kept of any conflicts identified, along with the action taken.  If a conflict cannot be removed, it is important that it is adequately managed with ongoing controls and review.  Where clients need to make an informed decision about a conflict, they will be advised as soon as practicable.
