Policy for integrating the sustainability risk into the remuneration policy
Following the enforcement of Regulation (EU) 2019/2088, our remuneration policy was updated with the aim to strengthen the promotion of sound and effective risk management in relation to sustainability risks. In particular, each employee has been assigned at least one objective related to the implementation of ESG principles and relevant to their corporate function. With specific regard to managers involved in the investment process of AIFs that fall into the product categories governed by Articles 8 and 9 of EU Regulation 2019/2088, they are assigned specific objectives that integrate the risks and ESG factors relevant to the investments of each asset portfolio.
Responsible investment strategy
We adopt an ethical and responsible approach to our business and, as active investors we keep looking for long-term sustainable value creation. We hold a deep conviction that our business model must have a positive impact on the real economy and social environment.
