Responsible investing

For this fund we employ a strategy of integration and company engagement/voting. This means our team researches all the companies we invest in and actively checks for any environmental, social or governance (ESG) risks that may apply to them. It helps our Portfolio Manager develop an understanding of each company, and influences not only whether we invest in companies, but also how much. 

This fund also includes negative screening to remove companies whose business activities may lead to significant harm in society. Zero-tolerance exclusions include tobacco, nuclear explosives, cluster munitions, anti-personnel mines, pornography and controversial firearms.
