All our portfolio managers (who are also financial analysts) are responsible for implementing SRI investment. The investment team works according to a collegiate organisation. Portfolio managers have the ability to manage all the funds (including SRI fund) and they have been trained to our ESG approach. The CIO (and co-CIO), who are also board members, have oversight and accountability for responsible investment.

Regarding our external ESG database, we ask the provider to adapt the data, to provide additional explanations if discrepancies are noted as compared to our internal research.

07.6 CC. For board-level roles that have climate-related issue oversight/accountability or implementation responsibilities, indicate how these responsibilities are executed.

Climate related risks and opportunities have been taken into account quite early as Metropole Gestion is an asset manager based in France and is subject to the implementation of the French Law voted in 2015. In 2015, France decided to introduce an innovative extra-financial reporting system. Article 173-VI of the law of 17 August 2015 on Energy Transition for Green Growth includes greater transparency obligations for investors regarding the consideration of criteria relating to compliance with environmental, social and governance quality (ESG) objectives in their investment strategies, that specifically include taking climate risks into account within these obligations and the means implemented to contribute to the Energy and Ecological Transition.

Therefore, an annual report is available on our website for the Company and for most of our equity funds.

We also became signatory of the TCFD in 2019 and started to build a climate score for each equity fund that is going to be improved in 2020 following the TCFD recommandations as companies will improve their climate risks and opportunities disclosures under the TCFD framework.


SG 08. RI in performance management, reward and/or personal development

08.2. Describe any activities undertaken during the reporting year to develop and maintain Board members’ skills and knowledge in relation to responsible investment.

All the board members with operational responsibilities have been trained to our Value Responsible approach (ESG framework, Value Responsible Investment process, CSR policy etc.). In addition to that, please note that 2 of the board members (the CIO and co-CIO) take part in company visits / interviews on ESG topics and reinforce their knowledge on this occasion. The funding of the research chair of University of Auvergne makes it possible for them to get sound knowledge of ESG issues and RI methodologies.
