Our Approach

ESG Integrated Approach

The Portfolio Managers have been running sustainable Global Equity portfolios since 2013, screening out the vice sectors which are at risk of regulatory change, and low ESG scoring companies. We look for Leaders in the ESG space within their industries. To help do this, we leverage Sustainalytics, a leading independent information source on ESG criteria. Mirabaud Asset Management also has a dedicated team of Socially Responsible Investing specialists that work jointly with the investment team to strengthen ESG engagement and capture the non-financial risks of the companies selected for the strategy.

Multi-thematic focus

We’ve been employing thematic investing in this strategy since its inception. We have identified eight global themes, and multiple sub-themes underneath them, which share common attributes – innovation and structural growth drivers as a result long-term sustainable demand from consumers or industries. When we consider a company, it’s always in the context of how it fits within one of our themes, which provide companies with additional growth drivers.

Our approach to achieving sustainable dividend investing

We select companies with a combination of stable high free cash flow yields and strong balance sheets. This means they can deliver a solid yield today, with the underlying growth and stability in cash flows to grow future dividends. We also believe that companies positioned to benefit from global themes enjoy additional growth factors, providing more stability in longer term dividend generation across all market environments.

Our core belief is that companies paying dividends are highly disciplined in managing their cash flow, apply rigorous standards to capital expenditure decisions and are careful stewards of their cash.
