Linea Valori Responsabili selection and Sicav sub-funds

Selezione Linea Valori Responsabili Etica Sgr

The selection process of the “Valori Responsabili” Line and Sicav sub-funds[1]. The methodology selects businesses and countries that adopt responsible ESG (environment, social and governance) practices, adopting a global approach to topics and sectors.

Negative selection

We say NO to investments in weapons, tobacco, gambling, nuclear energy, pesticides and genetic engineering. We also exclude companies involved in negative practices in terms of corruption, environmental protection and employment rights.
We also currently exclude the oil and mineral extraction sectors and it is suspended the financial sector i.e. investment companies, insurance industry and banking industry, except for banks defined as “sustainable” by their history and their activities.
We avoid securities issued by countries that have the death penalty or that do not respect civil and press freedom and political rights.

Positive selection

We say YES to opportunities to invest in socially and environmentally responsible countries and businesses with the greatest focus on sustainability and collective wellbeing. Consequently, issuers that make it through the first round of the selection process are analysed in more detail and assessed according to environmental, social and governance criteria. Each issuer is assigned an overall score based on an assessment of dozens of indicators (more than 100 for businesses and 60 for countries).
Only issuers with scores higher than an absolute threshold and which are the best in their sector (“best-in-class” approach) go on to become part of the Investable Universe of the Line’s funds.
