PCM has two legal professionals and one dedicated member of its operations team based in Moscow who spend most of their time on corporate governance and responsible investment related issues. Those issues are also integral part of our investment team’s activities. One partner in London oversees all ESG related issues.
More broadly ESG issues are considered by:
Investment team. Responsible investment issues are analysed alongside other factors in the investment process. PCM’s investment team employs a collective and collaborative approach in their investment analysis and implementation. As such, the full investment team works together to identify, discuss and resolve issues related to responsible investment. On the governance side, they are responsible for day-to-day sectors and companies’ governance analysis and engagements, on E and S side - for day-to-day sectors and companies’ general analysis that includes E and S factors and risks.
Corporate governance team. Not only members of PCM’s corporate governance team are integral members of the investment team, but they also maintain an oversight role (alongside PCM’s compliance team) for the implementation of PCM’s Responsible Investment Policy. On the governance side, they are responsible for day-to-day corporate actions, corporate law developments and corporate governance cases analysis and engagements, on E and S side – for day-to-day E and S companies data analysis and engagements.
Operations team. The team makes monitoring of corporate actions and maintenance of corporate actions list, analysis and systematisation of E and S data from companies reports.
Group Compliance Officer. The tGCO monitors, amongst other things, PCM’s adherence to its stated policies and practices, including the RI Policy.
Board of Directors. Its members have ultimate responsibility for all PCM’s activities on behalf of its clients.
