Investment philosophy in general

We believe in taking an active approach to investment management, building portfolios with a high level of conviction, while carefully managing risk. We see opportunity when certain asset classes and market segments are less efficient than others, creating particularly fertile ground for active management. Our detailed research harvests alpha by bridging sound fundamentals with pricing inefficiencies, and our suite of actively managed strategies are managed to identify these exceptional opportunities.

ESG PHILOSOPHY

The inclusion of ESG considerations within our traditional financial dates back to 2006 at our predecessor firm, AIG Asset Management. Indeed, having managed strategies across the asset classes in the Americas, Europe, Central Europe, Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia we have long faced ESG related issues that can have a meaningful impact on portfolio performance.

We are committed to strengthening and refining our ESG approach and are remain convinced that deferral to individual teams to establish specific policies and processes most appropriate to their investment activity is key to our success in this endeavor. We believe this to be one of our key competitive advantages and differentiates us from our peers. We are clear that ESG must be an “organic” effort that builds upon our existing investment philosophy, process and culture. We were not looking to change the core of our well-established and effective investment processes or graft a “new” ESG capability onto the Firm. Instead, we look to integrate ESG efforts in a manner that is complementary to our existing offerings. We rely on analysis of ESG risk factors, which aim at addressing the ESG risks that have the most weight in delivering alpha in our target investment universe and minimizing the ESG risks that have the most adverse effect on the portfolio's investment universe. By focusing on portfolio level ESG risks we are able to diversify away issuer exposure to those risks which are unattractive from a risk-reward standpoint and focus our exposure to those that are additive to the portfolio's objectives.
