Products/Services: RBC GAM recognizes that we have an obligation as a large global investor to act as an active, engaged and responsible owner and believes that such an approach will better enable us to enhance the long-term, sustainable performance of our portfolios. Our investment teams believe that Environmental Social and Governance (“ESG”) issues should be considered in the same manner as traditional financial issues in terms of their capacity to affect long-term investment performance. As such, they formally consider ESG factors and use ESG-related tools and research provided by MSCI and Sustainalytics as part of their credit and equity research and selection process. The degree to which ESG risk factors are routinely and systematically identified and assessed depends on the investment team managing the particular strategy in question. RBC GAM is also a signatory to the UN Principles of Responsible Investing (UNPRI). As part of our commitment to ESG analysis and monitoring, we have established a Corporate Governance & Responsible Investment group (“CGRI”). This group oversees and contributes to all activities at RBC GAM related to corporate governance and responsible investment including proxy voting policy and execution, providing ESG information to our investment teams in a way that is relevant and useful to them, designing a program to engage with the companies in which we are invested, and developing a process to provide more comprehensive reporting to existing and potential clients on RBC GAM's approach in this area. While all of our investment teams integrate ESG analysis in their investment processes, we also offer a series of socially responsible investment (“SRI”) funds which apply negative screens based on certain values principles to our core fixed income and equity strategies.
