Socially Responsible Investing
The monitoring and control of the socially responsible investment policies is done through sustainability analyses, which aim to analyse the degree of effective development of these policies. A standard way is via audits of portfolios for which Novaster has specific agreements with the most reputable global auditing and certification companies, and thus we work together with them to offer specific results for each pension fund or welfare institution.
Some of the strategies require specific action by the welfare institutions which may be adherence to global or specific platforms or standards, or in engagement practices, in voting decisions, or through thematic or impact investing. For all these matters, Novaster offers solutions adapted to each case, which can range from help with the procedures for adhering to platforms and making use of them, liaising with institutions working worldwide in engagement and voting arrangements, or in the selection of managers and thematic funds.
