At RAM AI, we consider it our duty toward all stakeholders to help fulfil a clear sustainable objective. We have made efforts to progressively integrate Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) elements across our existing fund range over the past few years, recognising both the escalating environmental issues and the unique investment opportunities they create over the longer term. We are committed to progressively decarbonising our investment portfolios and proposing unique solutions that tackle Climate Change to our investors, such as our RAM Stable Climate Global strategy.
We are making continuous efforts across all areas to deliver on our sustainable objective, whether it relates to our investment strategies, interaction with counterparties, or day-to-day operational activities. We believe it is only through this constant endeavour that we can achieve sustainable growth.
Furthermore, we collaborate closely with our stakeholders to help achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goal 13 - Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.
Socially Responsible Investment Policy
All our funds are managed in accordance with our Socially Responsible Investment Policy (SRI). The Policy is approved by the Board of RAM AI. Please find the latest SRI policy here.
SRI Committee - Driving the ESG effort
The RAM AI SRI Committee is responsible for overseeing ESG initiatives ranging from Corporate Socially Responsibility, Active Ownership (Voting & Engagement) to ESG Integration. The RAM AI SRI Committee is composed of employees from all departments with different expertise, including Fund Managers and Analysts, as well as Operations, IT, Marketing and Legal & Compliance. We are particularly proud of the dedication and convictions of all our employees in promoting sustainable values across all our business activities.
