We have developed a comprehensive RI Framework which comprises a wide range of RI approaches. Our RI Committee, chaired by NAM’s CEO, governs this framework and our RI Policy.
Within this framework all of our strategies are subjected to certain corporate level RI overlays:
• Engagement (incl. voting rights)
• Corporate level exclusion list
• ESG integration
While engagement is always NAM’s preferred approach, we have made a corporate-level decision to exclude certain stocks, sectors, and practices across our entire active fund range. Our RI policy details these sector exclusions and is complemented by specific company exclusion list.
