Responsible investing

We employ a strategy of integration and company engagement/voting, 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 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.

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