Responsible investment is becoming a major concern for investors. That is why we have incorporated environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) principles into our investment selection process. To that end, Optimum Asset Management became a signatory of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) on January 20th, 2012.
Moreover, our Board of Directors adopted a Policy on the Exercise of Voting Rights that incorporates these principles. Optimum Asset Management thus contributes to the improvement of businesses' management with a view to fostering their long-term profitability.
These initiatives help maintain our reputation for a high level of integrity, which forms the foundation of our trust-based relationships with clients, business partners, communities and government authorities. Optimum Asset Management, its officers and its employees therefore abide by stringent and exacting standards of ethics and professional conduct. The general principles of responsible investment and sustainable development form an integral part of these standards.
