APPROACH

For us, Environmental, Social, and Governance, or ESG, complement the analysis of the risk vs. return relationship of our investments.

ENVIRONMENTAL

  • Ecosystem
  • Environmental Management
  • Resource Usage
  • Waste Management
  • Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Social

  • Workers
  • Suppliers
  • Customers
  • Community

GOVERNANCE

  • People
  • Culture and Management
  • Trust and Integrity
  • Alignment of Interests
  • Control and Legal Structure

We also evaluate managament attitude in an attempt to not limit the analysis to a static picture, and capture the underlying story.

MATERIALITY

  • Does the company recognize its materiality and act upon it?

GOALS & TRANSPARENCY

  • Is disclosure aligned to international references, with material KPIs and goals?

EVOLUTION

  • Has the company evolved in materiality, goals and transparency?

FIGURE ILUSTRATIVELY DEMONSTRATES PERCENTAGE OF AUM ALOCATED IN EACH ESG QUADRANT, CONSIDERING:

I – COMPANIES WITH A REPUTATION FOR PRIORITIZING ESG AND WHOSE MANAGEMENT IS HIGHLY ENGAGED. WE SEE LOWER RISK AND A GREATER POTENTIAL FOR GENERATING VALUE WITH THESE COMPANIES THAT ARE A MARKET REFERENCE IN ESG. THEY THEREFORE BENEFIT FROM INCREASED EXPOSURE IN THE INDIE 2 FIC FIA FUND COMPARED TO THE INDIE FIC FIA FUND.

II – COMPANIES WHOSE MANAGEMENT DISPLAYS A WILLINGNESS TO DEVELOP ESG PRACTICES BUT HAVE NOT YET PUT THEM INTO PRACTICE. THESE HAVE THE SAME WEIGHT IN INDIE 2 FIC FIA AS THEY DO IN INDIE FIC FIA.

III – COMPANIES THAT ARE NOT YET DEVELOPING ESG FRONTS AND WHOSE MANAGEMENT IS NOT ENGAGED. WE UNDERSTAND THAT THESE COMPANIES PRESENT A HIGHER RISK OVER THE LONG TERM; THEY THEREFORE HAVE LESS EXPOSURE IN INDIE 2 FIC FIA COMPARED TO IN THE INDIE FIC FIA PORTFOLIO.

IV – COMPANIES THAT NATURALLY ADDRESS ESG ASPECTS, EVEN IF THEIR MANAGEMENT IS NOT FULLY ENGAGED WITH THE TOPIC JUST YET. THESE HAVE THE SAME WEIGHT IN INDIE 2 FIC FIA AS THEY DO IN INDIE FIC FIA.
