Avoidance criteria

ESG integration

Thematic investing

Intentionally avoiding (negative/ exclusionary screening) or targeting (positive/best-in-class screening or norms-based screening) investments in certain sectors or issuers based on values or risk criteria

Incorporating ESG criteria alongside financial analysis to identify risks and opportunities; focusing on materiality, controversies, societal externalities and upward ESG profile momentum is part of the analysis framework

Tilting portfolios towards certain themes or sectors, positioned to solve global sustainability related challenges like UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); often associated with investing in megatrends such as demographic changes and technological progress
