(A) Implementation: Screening

FI 04. Types of screening applied

04.1. Indicate the type of screening you conduct.

Select all that apply
Corporate (non-financial)
Negative/exclusionary screening
Positive/best-in-class screening
Norms-based screening

04.2. Describe your approach to screening for internally managed active fixed income

ESG incorporation in investment decision making: All internal Fixed Income Corporate portfolio managers have access to MSCI ESG data. This includes ESG Ratings & Research, Controversial Conduct scores and Climate Change metrics. The data is used as an input for portfolio monitoring and is considered as part of the risk/return analysis when making investment decisions.

Green bonds: The market for green bonds is increasing for Corporate Credit offerings and is considered in the security-selection phase. SSPF has a positive attitude towards this asset category and green bonds will be added to the portfolio where deemed appropriate.

Engagement: SSPF has recruited Hermes EOS for engagement activities on its corporate credit holdings.

Exclusions: PMs refrain from owning financial instruments of companies on the SSPF exclusion list. This could be because of involvement in the manufacture, sale or distribution of cluster munitions and anti-personnel landmines, or because of controversial conduct/UNGC non-compliance combined with unsuccessful engagement.

06.2. Additional information. [Optional]

Positive/best-in-class screening : There is a preference for certain ESG characteristics, so if an instrument exhibits these characteristics, it should be chosen over its peers - assuming all other characteristics are equal. There is no formal (case-by-case) check that this is done, but regular reports show the positioning of the portfolios on these ESG characteristics versus their benchmark.  

Negative/exclusionary screening / norms-based screening: PMs refrain from owning financial instruments of companies on the SSPF exclusion list. This could be because of involvement in the manufacture, sale or distribution of cluster munitions and anti-personnel landmines or because of controversial conduct/UNGC non-compliance combined with unsuccessful engagement (ultimum remedium).
