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. It helps our Portfolio Manager develop an understanding of each company, and influences the allocation of capital. This fund also includes negative screening to remove companies whose business activities may lead to significant harm. Zero-tolerance exclusions include the production of tobacco, nuclear explosives, cluster munitions, anti-personnel mines, pornography and controversial firearms.

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