Responsible Investment Policy
We are active and independent investors. We incorporate environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) issues into our investment analysis and decision-making process, as well as into our ownership policies and procedures.
We believe that firms which have a strong culture of good corporate governance and take environmental and social issues seriously will outperform over the long term. We also believe that it is part of our duty as investors to encourage more sustainable practices across the corporate and financial world.
We have signed up to the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (“PRI”), which guide us in incorporating ESG issues into our investment process.
We use the services of specialist firms such as Sustainalytics and ISS to help us with our decision-making process, alongside the knowledge and judgement of our investment staff based on many years of experience.
Lofoten Asset Management has also committed to give a proportion of its profits to charity every year, with an emphasis on those causes which can have a sustainable impact on the world.
