Approach to Responsible Investment

Stewardship and ESG integration

We consider ESG risks to be factors that may place business value at risk. Companies at risk are identified using both external providers and our own internally driven research, which is based on a systematic and extensive company meeting program.

Company meetings provide us with the opportunity to engage on ESG issues and gain greater insight into potential risks and opportunities. It also provides us with the opportunity to positively influence companies towards ESG best practice where appropriate. 

Identified ESG risk factors are used to assist in developing the quantitative and qualitative assumptions used by analysts in their assessment of industries and stocks. This analysis is vigorously stress tested and screened under a peer review process. This process seeks to highlight the analyst's and team's conviction in the target price and buy/sell recommendation.

Assessment and monitoring

ESG risks are primarily identified by the team's own internally-driven research, which is based on a rigorous company engagement programme. Analysts assess how companies are managing ESG issues and encourage the entities in which they invest to improve their ESG performance and disclosure. 

Integration

ESG considerations are used to help develop quantitative and qualitative risk assumptions in analysts' assessment of industries and stocks, and are overlaid in target price and stock recommendations. 

Engagement

We have active dialogue with chairpersons and/or senior company management on material ESG issues which we identify through our consideration of ESG risks. We try to gain comfort that the company's senior management and board are aware of, and accountable for, the management of material issues. Where we feel material issues are not being appropriately addressed it can ultimately flow into our proxy voting and investment decisions.

Case studies

We believe that a strong commitment to stewardship is an essential component of a strong approach to responsible investment (RI), and that embedding RI into the core of our investment activities is in the best long-term interests of our clients. For more than a decade we have systematically and progressively improved our practices and processes across our investment capabilities globally.
