Integration of sustainability risks into investment decisions
Alliance has adopted a policy (“ESG Policy”) to help formally address the integration of environmental, social and governance into fund business management processes.
Alliance’s approach to responsible and sustainable investment practices goes beyond the fundamentals of compliance with relevant laws and regulations. This approach is based on Alliance’s fundamental thesis that sustainability is an enabler for long term value creation and a catalyst for consistent compounding growth, making sustainability and financial returns aligned. Consequently, Alliance’s is strategically including responsible investment principles and ESG into the investment analysis, decision-making processes and active ownership for new investments. According to the Company’s investment policy, the Company will target Portfolio Companies that will have a net positive impact on UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Alliance has signed UN’s Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and is committed to:
- Incorporate ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes.
- Be active owners and incorporate ESG issues into our ownership policies and practices.
- Seek appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities in which we invest.
- Promote acceptance and implementation of the Principles within the investment industry.
- Work together to enhance our effectiveness in implementing the Principles.
- Report on our activities and progress towards implementing the Principles.
Sustainability risks effect on returns
In the Alliance’s view, sustainability risks, particularly where unmitigated, could affect the value of investments held by the Company and/or the ability of the Company to dispose of investments, and hence the value of the Company. However, given the type of investments targeted by the Company, Alliance assesses sustainability risks as such to impact the returns of the Company only to a minor extent.
Principal adverse impacts assessment
Alliance will consider ESG factors as part of its investment process when managing the Company, including assessments of any negative impact on UN Sustainable Development Goals to determine net positive impact for investment decisions, but, at this time, will not consider adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors as specifically set out in the SFDR. Alliance has chosen not to do so for the present time as it considers that its existing ESG policies and procedures are appropriate, proportional and tailored to the investment strategy of the Company. Alliance continues to closely monitor regulatory developments with respect to the SFDR and other applicable ESG-focused laws and regulations, including the implementation of related and secondary legislation and regulatory guidance, and will, where required or otherwise appropriate, make changes to its existing policies and procedures.
