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 includes ESG considerations in the research, selection, monitoring and reporting phases of the investment process. This may include third-party and internal material considerations, as defined by the investment team, of ESG criteria. The Fund manager undergoes a rigorous research phase in the construction of internal ESG research signals, which highlight criteria such as human capital or management quality. As part of this research, the Fund manager conducts due diligence on ESG data providers. Once these signals have met the criteria necessary to be incorporated in the portfolio, they are considered as part of the investment decisions on an ongoing basis as part of a broader set of signals. The Fund manager additionally uses standardized ESG criteria (headline ESG ratings, carbon emissions intensity) during the reporting phase. These may be sourced internally or directly from third-party data providers and are featured in internal portfolio analytics. The Fund manager conducts regular portfolio risk reviews with 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.
