As part of a global reflection on the impact of its investments, Chahine Capital has decided to adopt a responsible approach in the choice of its investments. It is essential to us at Chahine Capital to align the interests of investors with the general interests of civil society.
First, we have decided at a corporate-level to exclude certain sectors and practices from our entire range of funds.
We have secundly supplemented our existing daily-risk policy with a component related to ESG. Indeed, business conduct risks related to human rights, labour, the environment and corruption can result in risks to a company’s reputation and finances, and therefore in a risk for the final investor. Thus, we exclude companies with a high level of controversy (levels defined in the ESG Risk Control procedure). We use the external RepRisk database for this purpose.
By integrating ESG concerns into its investment processes, Chahine Capital aims to ensure that the notion of long-term investment stays in line with respect for the future generations.
Since October 2019, Chahine Capital has joined the network of investor managers who have signed the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI).
We voluntarily undertake to apply the 6 principles defined in favor of responsible investment. These principles are intended to help signatories to incorporate environmental, social and governance issues into their investment and shareholding decisions.
The Luxembourg Finance Labelling Agency (LuxFLAG) has also awarded the ESG label to 4 of the funds managed by Chahine Capital : Digital Funds Stars Europe, Digital Funds Stars Europe Ex-UK, Digital Funds Stars Europe Smaller Companies, Digital Funds Stars US Equities.
This label reflects our desire to be part of the powerful and virtous current of responsible finance.
