Responsible investing as part of a sustainable future is one of the most important topics of our time. Sustainability risks can be segmented into environmental, social or corporate governance events or conditions (ESG), whose occurrence could have an actual or potential negative impact on the financial outcomes of an investment.
Regulation regarding disclosure requirements on sustainability issues is being drafted on a European level and parts are already in force. The uncertainty surrounding the regulatory framework led to our decision to opt out of the requirements: AXOVISION does not take into account adverse effects of investment decisions on sustainability risks within the meaning of the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2019/2088).
Nevertheless, we do think that responsible investing is an integral part of a sustainable future and we have a considerable interest in fulfilling our responsibility as a financial market participant. We consider metrics, that we see relevant, in our investment decisions to identify and, if possible, exclude investments that show increased sustainability risks. This does not imply an ESG-aligned investment objective, but rather shows that ESG information is part of our investment process. These integrations follow solely and exclusively our own assessments and considerations and will continuously be enhanced in the future.
How do we do this?
We create an ESG score relying on 21 different metrics depending on environmental and social factors as well as 12 metrics depending on governance issues. The E&S score that we derive represents a ranking of a company relative to its MSCI ACWI sector peers. The G score represents a ranking among the complete MSCI ACWI universe. To compute the final output, we build an average ESG score by combining the E&S and G Score. The input data for the metrics is derived from annual reports, integrated reports, sustainability / CSR reports and CDP reports of the corresponding companies. Further news flow from reliable media sources and sector analyst reports are included. The data is derived from Goldman Sachs, Bloomberg as well as Refinitiv and delivered via Goldman Sachs. We do not invest (net long position) in companies whose calculated ESG score is among the worst 25% of all companies assessed. In this way, we want to ensure that sustainability risks are avoided.
