We prioritise clear and transparent disclosure of our Engagement, ESG and Exclusionary Policies. Here are links to these Policies. You can also find a link to our Responsible Investment Policy here.
Our ESG Policy explains how we integrate ESG considerations into our investment analysis, including in-depth credit and sustainability verification of both issuers of bonds and the issues themselves.
We take a firm stance against industries that produce negative externalities. From tobacco to gambling, weapons to coal, our Exclusionary Criteria clearly articulates investments in issuers that we avoid.
If we believe an issuer or issue is no longer suitable, we will remove them from our investment universe. Our Divestment Criteria articulate the process for the sale of these holdings from our portfolios.
