ESG Integration

ESG Integration

ESG integration is the practice of incorporating material environmental, social and governance (ESG) information or insights alongside traditional measures into the investment decision process to improve long term financial outcomes of portfolios. Unless otherwise stated in Fund documentation or included within the Fund’s investment objective, inclusion of this statement does not imply that the Fund has an ESG-aligned investment objective, but rather describes how ESG information is considered as part of the overall investment process.


The Fund manager evaluates the fundamental and strategic aspects of each security in which the Fund may invest. This may include a detailed, comprehensive review and analysis of all aspects of the company, including ESG policies, when evaluating opportunities. The Fund manager's deep due diligence informs a holistic perspective on a given issuer and may impact the investment decision. Additionally, on a regular basis the Fund manager conducts portfolio risk reviews with the Risk and Quantitative Analysis group. These reviews include discussion of the portfolio’s exposure to material ESG risks, as well as exposure to sustainability-related business involvements, climate-related metrics, and other factors.
