Type of screening
We believe that Environmental, Social and Governance are important factors in measuring the sustainability and impact on an investment in a company and have significant financial relevance. Incorporating these factors into investment analysis and portfolio construction can help mitigate risk, leading to superior long-term performance. Slater Investments does not outsource any of our assessment on ESG to rating agencies. We have conducted research into whether ESG ratings are helpful in achieving investment returns and concluded they are not. This may be down to the fact that ESG is still at its infant stage or it may be that bad companies can game the system. We believe that the way forward is to change behaviour from within companies and actively engage with management to bring about change. We have a first-class record in active engagement with management of companies that we own.
We will notify clients if and when our screening criteria changes, although this has not happened yet.
