Mint receives A+ rating from UNPRI

Mint Asset Management Limited (Mint) receives A+ rating from UNPRI for Responsible Investment Governance and Strategy.

This is Mint’s first assessment by the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) since becoming a signatory to the global initiative. A+ is the highest rating achievable for the overall approach taken by Mint’s investment process.

The UNPRI is the global benchmark for how investment managers approach responsible investment. This assessment recognises Mint’s incorporation of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factor scores for individual companies, which are selected for Mint’s portfolios managed on behalf of both retail and institutional clients.

In the assessment report for 2017, ratings are given across a range of asset classes with Mint scoring ratings of A to A+ (on a scale of E to A+) for listed Equities, compared to peers on a local and global level.

Paul Richardson, Chief Investment Officer at Mint, welcomed the independent assessment of Mint’s investment process. “We are very pleased with the report as we believe ESG outcomes are important to the risk adjusted returns we strive to deliver to clients”.

Mint has a new fund ‘The Mint New Zealand SRI Equity Fund’ which is available to wholesale investors and utilises the investment philosophy and process reviewed by the UNPRI.
