Disclosures in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 Sustainable Finance Disclosures Regulation (the “SFDR”)
It is important to Centre Partners that all employees are fully aligned with the firm’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) principles. However, adherence to such principles is not linked to employees’ performance assessments and does not have any impact upon their remuneration.
Sustainability risk means an environmental, social or governance event or condition that, if it occurs, could cause an actual or a potential material negative impact on the value of the investment (“Sustainability Risk”). Centre Partners’ criteria used to determine the remuneration level of employees does not take into account relevant Sustainability Risks. Sustainability Risk is treated in the same way as other risks which could cause a material negative impact on the value of a fund or portfolio. Generally, Centre Partners reward long term performance and promote among its employees (as is relevant to their role) a focus on financial sustainability.
Centre Partners do not currently consider the adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors within the meaning of the SFDR. Whilst ESG considerations are integrated into Centre Partners’ investment process, the detailed rules underlying the SFDR will require Centre Partners to ascertain the availability of the data expected to be reported under the new requirements of the SFDR. As such, the position will continue to be monitored and reviewed by Centre Partners as the underlying rules are finalised and market practice becomes apparent.
