Products/Services: RBC GAM recognizes that we have an obligation as a large global investor to act as an active, engaged and responsible owner and believes that such an approach will better enable us to enhance the long-term, sustainable performance of our portfolios. We define Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) Integration as the systematic integration of ESG factors into the investment process. All of our investment teams, across all asset classes and strategies, incorporate ESG analysis into their investment processes. It is our view that it is optimal for each of our investment teams to develop their own methods to integrate ESG factors into their respective investment processes. This bottom-up approach ensures that the integration of ESG factors adds value and complements the teams’ well-established investment processes, since each team is able to focus on the methodologies that work best for it, as well as the ESG issues it deems most material to its investments. We also offer strategies that are specifically designed to incorporate socially responsible investing (SRI) principles into the portfolio construction. We define Socially Responsible Investing as the application of positive or negative screens to include or exclude companies from the investment universe based on a defined set of values. The RBC Vision strategies invest primarily in the securities of companies that conduct themselves in a socially responsible manner. The strategies apply qualitative and exclusionary screens for security selection in accordance with their ESG analytical framework. In addition, we manage an exchange-traded strategy focused on women in leadership. Further, we are capable of managing customized SRI portfolios for institutional clients in Canada, and have been doing so since 1992. These mandates are managed on a case-by-case basis, whereby our portfolio managers would work with the client to construct a segregated SRI portfolio to include or exclude specific investments in accordance with their investment guidelines and ethical commitments. Our SRI offering includes the following funds: RBC Vision Balanced Fund, RBC Vision Bond Fund, RBC Vision Canadian Equity Fund, RBC Vision Global Equity Fund, and the RBC Vision Fossil Fuel Free Global Equity Fund, as well as the RBC Vision Women's Leadership Canada Index ETF.
Philosophy/Style: All of our investment teams incorporate ESG analysis into their investment processes, including our SRI strategies where our investment teams still integrate ESG factors into the investment process after the application of the positive or negative screens.
