ESG philosophy

An investment process based on long-term sustainable investment considerations and taking ESG criteria into account is, in our view, a decisive factor in achieving maximum risk-adjusted returns and, hence, also in our clients’ best interests. We are confident that research about sustainability topics is essential to a comprehensive understanding of risks. Accordingly, ESG aspects are a basic component of our research process.

Taking ESG criteria into account helps us identify additional opportunities and risks in credit analysis, thus supporting us better understand companies in which we invest and, hence, make better investment decisions resulting in higher risk-adjusted returns over the long term.

ESG integration is based on the following convictions:

  • ESG criteria are integrated into our research processes in the most meaningful way possible to provide greater insight into fundamentals;
  • Our task is to manage our investors’ assets in a responsible manner. This makes it essential to take sustainability considerations into account, as well, and to engage issuers in a direct dialogue;
  • Business or corporate practices that do not comply with the objectives of responsible investment are excluded.

Our global sustainable convertible bond strategy expands the integrated approach with a combination of exclusion criteria and a best-in/best-of-class approach.

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]

According to our ESG investment policy we never invest in manufacturers of banned armaments. We incorporate sustainability research into our fundamental credit analysis and communicate with companies on the subject of sustainability. Responsible investment helps us to identify additional risks and opportunities when selecting issuers.

Fisch manages several mandates with a focus on responsible investments. The forms of implementation are manifold. For example, we have clients that provide us with exclusion lists in order to ensure a strategy that is purely based on responsible investments.

In 2009, Fisch launched one of the first sustainable convertible bond fund together with cooperation partner Bank J. Safra Sarasin AG, which provides the sustainable investment universe, a combination of exclusion critiera and best-in-class/best-of-class approach. The key elements of this investment approach are formed around following risks: - Environmental risks: regulatory changes, accidents, pricing of resources, environmental liabilities, protests, etc. - Social risks: labour conflicts, supply chain issues, corruption, product liability, loss of reputation, etc. - Governance risks: sustainability of business model, board culture, remuneration, communication with shareholders, etc.

Fisch does not engage in proprietary trading, does not generate income from trading and does not accept retrocessions or soft dollars. Hence, Fisch has no major source of conflicts of interest.

Furthermore, our corporate culture is characterised by independence, entrepreneurial spirit and joint ownership. The firm is 100% owned by its employees. In our view, the large extend of entrepreneurial spirit and pronounced corporate transparency leads to a genuine prevention of conflicts of interest.
