Since April 2020* the investment process of most of the funds managed by ANIMA* now takes into consideration, in addition to financial criteria, also the environmental, social and governance rating of the securities. Some issuers (especially in the military/defense sector) will also be excluded from the investable universe.
A dedicated ESG Committee constantly monitors the ESG profile of the funds. With the transparency that has always characterized ANIMA, the communication to the final customer will also cover these aspects, starting from the dedicated website esg.animasgr.it
In 2020 ANIMA obtained an "A" rating for the ESG Strategy & Governance from UNPRI
* The ESG criteria have been applied since the end of April 2020 on the main funds of the "Anima System", except for products heavily investing into other products (funds, indices or synthetics) and securities of issuers not covered by the rating agencies and they will be progressively extended to the other products of the group.
