ESG implementation:

We take ESG aspects into account in the financial analysis and investment decision-making process, applying a combination of exclusion criteria and ESG integration approach in the investment process. The abbreviation ESG stands for "Environmental - Social - Governance".

For the analysis within the sustainability approach, we rely on data from selected third-party providers and, if necessary, on our own analyses. The analysts and portfolio management teams are responsible for both the financial analysis and the ESG analysis. In this way, we ensure that the assessment and implementation are carried out on a recurring basis by the decision-makers in the respective fund as part of a comprehensive and integrated investment process.

In our investment process, we do not per se exclude investments in companies with weaker ESG ratings: Companies that address the issue of sustainability convincingly and consistently can be interesting portfolio companies.
