Sustainability-related disclosure

This Sub-Fund aims to deliver performance by investing in bonds issued primarily by emerging market (EM) sovereign and corporate issuers denominated in hard and local currencies in a manner consistent with the principles of environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) focused investing.

It promotes environmental (E) and social (S) characteristics but does not have as its objective sustainable investment. However, it will have a minimum proportion of 5% of sustainable investments.

These Sustainable Investments contribute to a range of environmental and/or social objectives which may include but are not limited to, alternative and renewable energy, energy efficiency, pollution prevention or mitigation, reuse, and recycling and/or social objectives such as, but not limited to, health, nutrition, sanitation and education.

To ensure that the Sustainable Investments that this Sub-Fund intends to make do not cause significant harm, the Investment Manager assesses whether these companies do no harm through an internally designed methodology which covers principal adverse impact, controversies, misalignment with SDGs and ESG/governance quality.

This Sub-Fund aims to have better environmental and social characteristics than the Emerging Market (EM) bond universe. For that purpose, the Investment Manager uses the JP Morgan JESG scores which assess the ESG quality of each issuer based on a number of E and S quantitative indicators.

The sustainability indicators used to measure the attainment of the environmental or social characteristics promoted by this Sub-Fund include:

  1. The Sub-Fund’s holdings in Sustainable Investments.
  2. The Sub-Fund’s holdings in use-of-proceeds bonds, including, but not limited to “green bonds”, “sustainable bonds” and “social bonds” as well as “sustainability- linked bonds”
  3. The Sub-Fund’s holdings in investments that are deemed to have associated positive externalities and avoidance of negative externalities.
  4. The Sub-Fund’s consideration of some principal adverse impacts (PAIs) on sustainability factors.
  5. The Sub-Fund’s exclusion of holdings in issuers identified by the exclusion criteria set out in the UBP exclusion criteria as well as of issuers with a JESG score below 20.

The investment strategy relies on credit and macroeconomic assessments as well as environmental, social and governance (ESG) analysis.

The investment process includes ESG analysis which combines internal and external research conducted by a variety of ESG data providers including, but not limited to, JP Morgan, MSCI ESG Research, Sustainalytics as well as recognized organizations like the World Bank. In particular, the Investment Manager has developed a proprietary ESG sovereign scoring integration strategy, which aims to identify how non-economic factors impact asset performance, focusing on a country's ESG credentials and its ability to handle sustainability risks and opportunities.

Negative screening leads to the exclusion of issuers with the worst ESG performance.

The Investment Manager takes into consideration and seeks to minimize the following potential principal adverse impacts of its investments: 1) GHG Intensity of Investee Companies, 2) Violations of UN Global Compact principles and Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, 3) Exposure to Controversial Weapons and 4) Investee countries subject to social violations.

This Sub-Fund invests at least 51% of its net asset value in fixed income transferable securities issued by governments or government agencies of emerging markets denominated in both emerging market and non-emerging market currencies and included within the J.P. ESG Morgan EMBIG Diversified 50%+ J.P. Morgan ESG GBI-EM GD – USD unhedged 50%.

At least 51% of net assets of this Sub-Fund are aligned with the environmental and social characteristics promoted by the strategy, including at least 5% invested in a mix of environmentally and/or socially sustainable investments, depending on investment opportunities.

The binding criteria used to attain each of the environmental and/or social characteristics promoted by the Sub-Fund are integrated in control systems, to ensure pre- and post trade checks. Compliance is monitored by the Risk department on an ongoing basis.

The Investment Manager may use data reported directly by issuers or sourced from third-party data providers such as JP Morgan, MSCI ESG Research or Sustainalytics. The service and data quality provided by third-party ESG data providers are reviewed regularly.

Depending on the metric considered, some data may be estimated by data providers. Although the Investment Manager applies a thorough selection process of third-party providers, their processes and proprietary ESG methodology may be flawed. As a result, there is a risk of incorrectly assessing an issuer, resulting in an inappropriate capture of ESG risks and potential incorrect inclusion or exclusion in the product. This is expected to have limited impact on the overall environmental and/or social characteristics promoted by the product.

The investment due diligence process ensures that the investment decisions comply with the objectives and the investment strategy of the Sub-Fund. The consideration of sustainability-related risks is integrated into the investment decision-making process to ensure better-informed investment decisions as well as awareness of the risk exposure. The first level of due diligence is conducted by the Investment Manager, while the second level is conducted by the Risk department.

Engagement with investee companies may occur. It can be conducted collaboratively as well as, on an ad-hoc basis, directly by the Investment Manager, as part of its overall ESG assessment.

No reference benchmark has been designated for the purpose of attaining the environmental or social characteristics promoted by this Sub-Fund.
