We consider Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) factors when making investment decisions for all the strategies we manage. When we include these factors alongside traditional financial metrics, we are able to think more broadly about
risk, and make more prudent investment decisions. In other words, it is in the best interests of our clients to integrate ESG into our process.
Through our in-depth credit research, RPIA is in regular communication with the management teams of the issuers in which we invest. We use this platform as a way to champion ESG analysis, discussing with companies the importance of ESG-related disclosures
and the risks that we see from an ESG perspective.
