Responsible investing

We employ a strategy of integration and company engagement, meaning our team researches the companies we invest in and actively checks for any environmental, social or governance (ESG) risks that may apply. They also develop an impact thesis for each security, linked to at least one UN SDG. This helps our team develop an understanding of each company, and influences not only whether we invest in companies, but also how much. The fund also utilises external managers, who must meaningfully integrate ESG and impact into their processes. The Impact Committee, made up of internal and external members, provide guidance and oversight on impact issues and SDGs. This fund also includes negative screening to remove companies whose business activities may lead to significant harm. Zero-tolerance exclusions include Adult Entertainment, Alcohol, Controversial Weapons, Gambling, Tobacco, UN Global Compact Violators and Whaling. Companies with exposure to fossil fuels will only be included if they are proven to be rapidly transitioning to renewables.

Additional information on screening thresholds and processes are outlined in the exclusions section of our ESG Policy.
