'ESG Inside' our processes, products and advisory

We integrate ESG factors alongside financial factors into the core of our investment processes, products and advisory. We call it ‘ESG Inside’ and it is about making better-informed investment decisions, addressing material risks, problems and opportunities, and influencing invested companies through dialogue in order to contribute to a positive outcome.

By factoring in all ESG and financial matters that impact company strategy and outlook, I get a clear view on whether a company is managed effectively and likely to generate long-term returns. Is an integral part of my investment philosophy and an important to in creating value to our customers.

Active ownership and dialogue makes a difference

We seek to be active owners and use our influence as an investor to make a difference and influence portfolio companies through dialogue and voting. Our dialogue is driven by our portfolio managers as they are tasked with the buy/sell decision, the experts of their investment strategies and portfolio companies. WHAT??!!! We believe that this is the most effective and constructive way for us to influence companies and contribute to a positive outcome.

Portfolio managers engage with invested companies on a regularly basis to

  • Discuss material matters that impact company performance and outlook
  • Gain a better understanding of the companies’ strategies and ability to mitigate risks and leverage opportunities
  • Influence and support business growth and development
