BestSelect-UBS SRI Global Equity

Profile

BestSelect-UBS SRI Global Equity focuses on realizing long-term value growth. The strategy is aimed at achieving its performance objective through investing in companies with an average and above average score on environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria. In addition companies that generate more than 5% of their revenue from controversial industries like (controversial) weapons, tobacco, gambling, genetically modified organisms (GMO), alcohol, fur, adult entertainment, nuclear power and fossil fuels are excluded from investment. After the selection of companies with average and above average ESG scores and the industry exclusions the strategy passively invests in the remainder of the companies from the MSCI World Index. Issuer concentration in the fund is managed through a quarterly rebalancing with the objective to reset the maximum single issuer weights at 5%. Between these quarterly rebalancing dates, issuers weights will drift due to price movements of the securities in the portfolio. At all times an upper limit on single issuer weights of 7% will apply.

The manager will only accept subscriptions from investors who are exempt from withholding taxes in the United States under the tax treaty between the Netherlands and the United States.

Environmental and/or social characteristics promoted

In the process of selecting Investment Managers, the capabilities of the Investment Managers to implement the Management Company's criteria for responsible investment are assessed. We perform an in-depth analysis on how the Investment Managers evaluates ESG risks and opportunities when selecting and monitoring investments. Amongst others we score the Investment Managers on Commitment to Responsible Investing, ESG Integration, Active Ownership and Transparency. Based on this fundamental ESG analysis we form an opinion on the quality of the Investment Manager’s sustainability processes. The Investment Manager itself performs the analysis of the ESG profile of the companies it invests in. The material risks and opportunities of the investee companies are assessed on a case-by-case basis.

ESG Investment process

Each quarter, the companies in the portfolio are screened for compliance with Kempen’s ESG criteria. These take into account international standards, such as UN Global Compact Framework, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, UN Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights, and our Principles for Responsible Investment commitments. In evaluating a security or issuer based on ESG criteria, we may also rely on information and data from third party ESG advisers (including but not limited to Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS), MSCI ESG Research and Sustainalytics).

The screening process allows us to monitor the ESG performance of all the companies in the fund, and to engage on issues which are identified. The output of the screen feeds into quarterly challenging sessions between ESG specialists and representatives of the Manager Research Solutions team. During the challenging sessions, we assess whether the ESG risks and opportunities are sufficiently reflected in the investment decision making process of the Investment Manager.

Exclusion

In line with the general Kempen exclusion policy, we exclude all companies on the Kempen Exclusion- and Avoidance lists. The lists are reviewed and updated on a quarterly basis. Our exclusion and avoidance framework includes a quarterly screening through which we seek to identify (potential) cases of issuers in breach of international standards. All norms used have been documented in the Kempen Conventions Library. In addition to the Exclusion and Avoidance Lists, companies involved in the production of conventional and civilian weapons, tobacco companies, pure coal and tar sand players will also be excluded from investment.
