Investment strategy ESG represents factors viz. Environmental (such as impact of business on natural resources), Social (such as business having social impact) and Governance (being the way in which the company is run). Quality companies with a competitive advantage, sustainable business model and visibility of earnings growth are the best avenues for long term wealth generation.
ESG factors can complement traditional tools of evaluating and identifying quality businesses and thus improve the overall understanding of the company. Typically, it is seen that the companies that have strong ESG metrics are companies that are well governed and treat their responsibilities to the environment and society seriously and as a result are likely to avoid negative external shocks that can impact their business models.
The investment strategy of the Scheme will be to invest in a basket of securities based on combining existing traditional fundamental, bottom-up financial analysis along with a rigorous analysis on the environmental, social and governance aspects of the company. The ESG analysis will be based on a comprehensive ESG framework adopted from some of the global best practices. The ESG process will be executed at various levels.
Sector level screening: The scheme will exclude sectors/themes that are deemed harmful from a societal perspective. We will avoid investment in companies operating in those industries and maintain that exclusion on an ongoing basis. For example we will not invest in companies involved in Cluster Munitions, Anti- Personnel Mines, and Chemical and Biological Weapons. We will not hold any security that is involved in the production, stockpiling, transfer and use of these weapons.
Stock level screening: Apart from sector exclusion list, we will not invest in stocks which throw up ESG red flags as a part of our review, even if the company is from a sector that is not a part of exclusion list.
