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.

No sustainable investment objective

The BestSelect – UBS SRI Global Equity (the “Fund”) falls under the scope of article 8 of the Sustainable Financial Disclosure Regulation (SFDR). The Sub-Fund promotes environmental and/or social characteristics, without an objective of making sustainable investments.

The environmental characteristics promoted by the Fund seek to contribute to achievement of the climate goals of the Paris Agreement. The Fund follows a decarbonization pathway that is lower than the MSCI World Index (the “Benchmark”) with a subsequent 7% annual reduction.

Environmental or social characteristics of the financial product

The Fund promotes the following environmental characteristics:Â
• climate change mitigation and climate change adaptation in line with the Paris Climate AgreementÂ
The Sub-Fund promotes social characteristics related to:
• decent work;
• adequate living standards and wellbeing for end-users;Â
• other social topics such as gender equality and broader diversity matters.Â

Investment strategy

The promotion of sustainable investments is achieved through the consistent implementation of the Fund’s ESG policy. The ESG policy is fully implemented in our strategy’s investment process across the three relevant pillars of: Exclusion, ESG Integration, Active Ownership.

Exclusion & Avoidance:Â
Not investing in companies involved in controversial activities or conduct.

ESG Integration:Â
Ensuring sustainability risks and opportunities are adequately considered in the investment analysis and processes. The Kempen ESG Manager Scoring framework is used to evaluate how the Investment Managers integrate various ESG factors into their investment processes and assess whether they meet Kempen’s requirements. After the initial selection of companies that pass the Sub-Funds ESG selection criteria, the Investment Manager passively invests in the remainder of the companies from the MSCI World Index.

Active Ownership:Â
Being responsible stewards of our clients’ capital and using our influence through engagement with the Investment Manager and voting to improve corporate behavior on specific ESG issues and achieve positive change.

Proportion of investments

The Sub-Fund promotes environmental and/or social characteristics, without an objective of making sustainable investments, including EU Taxonomy aligned.

Monitoring of environmental or social characteristics

Each quarter, the portfolio is screened for compliance with Kempen’s ESG criteria. The screening process allows Kempen to monitor the ESG performance of all companies in the Fund, and to enable engagement on potential issues identified. The output of the screen feeds into quarterly challenging sessions between ESG specialists and the Manager Research Solution team. Challenging sessions are used to assess whether ESG risks and opportunities are sufficiently reflected in the investment decision making process of the Investment Manager.Â

Methodologies

Kempen ESG Manager Scoring Framework is designed to help understand and evaluate how the external Investment Managers integrate various ESG factors into their investment processes. Managers are scored across the six pillars and are classified into five ESG flavors: compliant, basic, avoid harm, do better, do good. Â

Principle Adverse Indicators are monitored at individual holding level and at the portfolio level. Economic activities of portfolio companies can have adverse impacts on sustainability factors.Â

Carbon emission intensity is used as the key carbon metric. We calculate carbon intensity based on revenues (weighted average carbon intensity), which we use for our commitment, ambition and objectives. We also calculate carbon intensity based on Enterprise Value, which is also used by the EU Benchmarks.

EU Taxonomy alignment is measured by a third party provider.

Data sources and processing

External data providers include (but are not limited to) Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS), which we use for governance research, carbon data and Sustainable Development Goals data, MSCI ESG Research, which we use for company ESG Ratings, product involvement data, UN Global Compact Data, and Sustainalytics, which we use for ESG Risk Ratings and product involvement data. The degree to which the investments are in environmentally sustainable economic activities under the EU Taxonomy is measured by a third party provider MSCI ESG, which is using a combination of actual data from investee companies and estimates on EU Taxonomy alignment made by the third party provider. Internal as well as external data is collected and processed in several data analytics (including FactSet) and internal compliance systems (including ThinkFolio).Â

Limitations to methodologies and data

Externally provided ESG data is far from perfect. To ensure data quality we can engage with Investment Managers, third party vendors and portfolio companies. Limitations include, but are not limited to discrepancies between company reported data and data provided by third parties, inconsistencies across data vendors, market cap bias and modelling assumptions.Â

Due diligence

Before delegating the implementation of the investment policy to an Investment Manager, the Manager Research Solutions team performs an extensive due diligence, including a chapter on ESG which evaluates how various ESG factors are into their investment processes. The Investment Manager itself performs an analysis of the ESG profile of the companies it invests in. The material ESG risks and opportunities of the investee companies are assessed on a case-by-case basis.Â

Designated reference benchmark

Although there has been no index designated as a reference benchmark, by 2025 the Sub-Fund aims to have a carbon intensity that is below the EU Climate Transition Benchmark (EU CTB) pathway. The EU Climate Transition Benchmark has the aim to reach net-zero emissions by 2050 - in line with the 1.5°C scenarios from the IPCC. This pathway assumes a carbon intensity that is lower than the MSCI World Index (the “Benchmark”) with a subsequent 7% annual reduction. As the Sub-Fund cares about the direction of travel and reduction of carbon emissions in the economy, it might be that the actual reducing trend may deviate from the average pathway.
