Aim of investment Long-term capital growth through global investments in shares of companies that abide by sustainability criteria.
Investment strategy Worldwide investment in stocks or similar securities which have to undergo a strict selection process according to ecological and ethical criteria. Their business and profit forecast should be good to above average.
Investment process The investment universe is screened amd determined by the agency Inrate using a multi-stage analysis process, that is being defined and adjusted periodically by Inrate. Companies are assessed about their environmental, social and ethical standards.
Eco-rating: CO2 intensity of products & services, other environmental impacts over the entire life cycle, ecological product development, ecological characteristics of the products, environmental guidelines, environmental management system, sustainable procurement, energy and water consumption, emissions in air, land and water, waste & recycling.
Social Rating: working conditions (personal mission statement, health & safety, training & further education, freedom of organisation & codetermination, equal opportunities, social standards in procurement), corporate governance (transparency in sustainability reporting, board composition, transparency regarding the remuneration of the board & CEO), society (human rights, effects of the products on consumers and third parties, and charitable activities, ethical code of conduct)
Ethical assessment: exclusion criteria (see below).
The comparison of the issuer is made using the approach "best in service". Companies that meet the same needs are compared with one another within one service sector. The assessment is carried out separately in both social & eco rating.
For a positive rating and inclusion in the investment universe one of the two ratings must be at least average and one must be a minimum of 5% above average of that service sector.
Furthermore these companies may not violate the exclusion criteria. An independent professional board examines and supports the methodology and makes the final decision on the inclusion of a title. The ratings are updated annually. The management uses only titles with a positive sustainability rating issued by Inrate, which is re-examined annually by internal and external auditors.
