01.4. Describe your organisation’s investment principles and overall investment strategy, interpretation of fiduciary (or equivalent) duties,and how they consider ESG factors and real economy impact.

Our investment principles are characterized by conservative principles and the long-term preservation of assets. The transparent and disciplined investment process is complemented by a dynamic investment style that does not dogmatically commit to a single investment focus. Great emphasis is placed on an independent investment strategy that enables individual fulfillment of the respective customer goals, free from conflicts of interest regarding issuers and products. Active portfolio management is supported by consistent risk management.

In addition to the classic investment criteria of return, risk and liquidity, Weberbank also advocates taking into account the ESG impact when investing. Motivation is the alignment of the investment with our own ethical values. At the beginning of 2017, Weberbank joined the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) Initiative of the UN to express its belief in the importance of transparency, sustainability and social responsibility in the context of investments. We adopted an exclusionary approach. Investments such as companies, industries or countries can be systematically excluded from the investment universe if they violate specific criteria. Depending on individual mandate requirements, a standardized or customized catalog of criteria can be applied.

SG 04. Identifying incidents occurring within portfolios

04.1. Indicate if your organisation has a process for identifying and managing incidents that occur within investee entities.

04.2. Describe your process on managing incidents

For our internally managed assets ESG incidents are identified by our research partners. As soon as we get notified about it, we review our investment on an ad-hoc basis. If necessary we sell the investment in a timely manner. All investments are reviewed at least quarterly. For our externally managed assets we maintain regular meetings and discussions with external managers in which we discuss these issues. If the manager does not sell the affected portfolio company, we may be forced to end the collaboration with the manager if there are conflicts with our policies.
