Responsible investment policy

Our ambition

At Coeli Asset Management we believe that we have the power to
make a difference and make changes towards a better and more
sustainable society. A responsible investment is not only about
return of investments but also considers the environment, social
aspects and how companies are managed. Our ambition is to
invest in companies that are proactive in the environmental,
social and governance issues, also called ESG issues.

Our clients are to a larger extent looking for investments that are
responsible and sustainable and we believe we can add value
to our clients. As a provider of actively managed investments
we have the possibility to influence the companies we are
investing in.

Policy for responsible investment

Coeli Asset Management’s policy for responsible investments is based on international norms for the environment, human rights, work conditions, and corruption. This means that we do not invest in companies that are violating these international norms and where a dialogue has not lead to the desired result. Coeli Asset Management does under no circumstances invest in companies that are involved in production or sales of illegal weapons, such as cluster munitions and anti-personal mines, or nuclear weapons.

Coeli Asset Management has signed the UN’s Principles for Responsible Investments (PRI) and applies these principles to ensure responsible investments.

Our approach

We expect that the companies we invest in apply to international norms and conventions. If a company violates these norms and conventions Coeli Asset Management initiates a dialogue with
the concerned company to achieve changes in management and behavior. If a dialogue does not lead to desired impact Coeli Asset Management will sell its holding in the company.

We ensure our investments apply to norms and conventions by working in different ways:

• The fund managers monitor on a daily basis the holdings in the funds.
• The fund managers have face to face meetings with corporate executives to gain better understanding of a business operation and management.
• Coeli Asset Management has defined a Risk Committee which is headed by the CIO, Chief Investment Officer. The Risk Committee follows up on a regular basis if investments are responsible and sustainable.
• l The holdings are screened by the external and independent organization ISS-Ethix. ISS-Ethix helps companies to audit companies from an ESG perspective.
