Access to the asset allocation and investment expertise of the M&G Treasury and Investment Office (T&IO), who manage around £175 bn of Assets Under Management (as at December 2021).
*We also have to take into account shorter-term performance, which means we’ll continually monitor the underlying fund performance and make adjustments to the fund value, up or down, when necessary. These are known as Unit Price Adjustments (UPAs).
The process and philosophy behind how we manage PruFund money has not changed, only evolved. We remain long-term investors and so believe that ESG factors should be considered in addition to and alongside the more traditional financial metrics.
ESG considerations are integrated into all of our investment decisions relating to asset allocation, mandate design and manager selection and oversight.
PruFunds screen for companies that intentionally violate human rights, labour standards, environment standards and anti-corruption laws. Certain actions will be taken, ranging from monitoring to engagement, to outright exclusion, based on our assessment of the individual company and the circumstances of the violation. More information is available in our ESG policy Q&A.
