Information on the strategies for the inclusion of sustainability risks in investment decision-making or investment advisory processes of e-sec.
(Art. 3 and 4 Regulation 2019/2088)
Regulation 2019/2088 on sustainability-related disclosure requirements in the financial services sector requires financial advisors that provide investment advice, such as e-sec, to disclose on the website, in accordance with Articles 3 and 4 of this Regulation, information on their strategies in incorporating sustainability risks and in considering the main adverse impacts on sustainability factors in their advisory activities.
Sustainability risks are environmental, social or governance events or conditions, the occurrence of which may have an actual or potential adverse impact on the value of investments. These sustainability risks are taken into account in all our business activities and receive constant attention.
The "sustainability factors" are considered to be relationships from the areas of "environment, social and corporate governance (so-called ESG factors), respect for human rights and the fight against corruption and bribery".
We consider the most significant negative impacts on sustainability factors when performing financial services. To identify and weight the most significant sustainability impacts, e-sec will consider issuers' reporting of non-financial risks. In doing so, the Institute may also use third-party evaluation of the respective issuers.
With regard to the content, methods and presentation of sustainability indicators for adverse aspects, the Institute will be guided by the publications of the relevant supervisory authorities.
e-sec does not promote environmental or social features or a combination of these features with the recommended financial products. Nevertheless, ESG criteria are an important issue for us, as sustainability risks can have a more or less negative impact on the return of an investment.
In this respect, we consider the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) promoted by the United Nations, which were launched with the aim of developing principles for responsible securities management, to be a meaningful initiative that we follow. This means:
We will incorporate ESG issues into the analysis and decision-making processes in our investment advisory services.
We will be an active shareholder as part of our participation policy and consider ESG issues in our advisory work.
We will, as part of our participation policy, encourage companies and entities whose acquisition we recommend to make appropriate disclosure regarding ESG issues.
We will drive acceptance and implementation of the Principles in the investment industry.
We will work together to increase our effectiveness in implementing the Principles.
We will report on our activities and progress in implementing the Principles as part of our reporting obligations.
With regard to the Principles for Responsible Corporate Governance, e-sec will follow the recommendations of the German Corporate Governance Code applicable to listed companies to the greatest extent possible.
The Institute's remuneration policy is consistent with the inclusion of sustainability risks. The principles of our remuneration policy ensure that e-sec employees are remunerated in a manner that does not conflict with our duty to act in the best interests of customers. There are no incentives under our compensation policy to recommend or broker financial instruments that are not consistent with the client's investment strategy. Our compensation structure does not incentivize inappropriate risk-taking in advisory activities for our clients
