For us, more sustainability means fewer risks. We consider non-financial aspects* as risk factors and work with specialists to adequately integrate a suitable process for evaluating the ESG guidelines of companies and issuers into our investment process. We support the UN Global Compact Pillars in the areas of human rights, labor standards, the environment and the prevention of corruption. At least 75% of the assets of the BlackPoint Evolution Fund are invested in securities whose issuers have been selected on the basis of ecological and social criteria as well as characteristics of responsible corporate management. To check the sustainability of corporate / covered bonds and stocks, individual issuers are rated on the basis of sustainability criteria that include ecological and social aspects as well as responsible corporate management (governance). Our proprietary screening and the evaluation of ESG company data and analyzes were designed with the help of ISS DataDesk, where ISS ESG sustainability filters are generally used. ISS ESG has internationally recognized expertise in all areas of sustainable and responsible investments. These include topics such as climate change, UN SDGs, biodiversity, human rights, labor standards, corruption, controversial weapons and much more. In a first step, filters are used to take into account predefined exclusion criteria for issuers. Violations of internationally recognized standards such as the UN Global Compact Pillars and activities in controversial business areas are excluded. In addition, upper sales limits may not be exceeded in critical business areas. Issuers with the lowest rating according to the ISS ESG logic are generally not investable. A multi-stage process is used to check the sustainability of issuers of government bonds. Bond issues from unfree states, states with high levels of corruption and states that hinder the free practice of religion are excluded. In addition, the states are subjected to an ESG minimum score review.
