Better Future Investments

The Perennial Better Future Fund (Managed Fund) (ASX:IMPQ) is an actively managed portfolio of mainly small and midcap listed (and unlisted) companies that are considered to be “Better Future Investments”. “Better Future Investments” are “Better Future Enabler Investments” or “Better Future Leader Investments.”

Better Future Enabler Investments” are defined as companies that at the time of acquisition, conduct businesses that are deriving more than 50% of their gross revenue from business operations that:

  • are generating renewable energy, improving energy efficiency or seeking to reduce greenhouse gas emissions; or
  • are involved in water treatment or remediation; or
  • are focused on providing environmental services or otherwise focused on environmental outcomes; or
  • involve technology or processes that enable businesses and/or individuals to reduce their resource use or improve the efficiency of their resource use (including by processing materials for recycling); or
  • contribute to social welfare outcomes, including improving the safety, health or well-being of workers; or
  • relate to health outcomes, including health products and health services; or
  • relate to education services or outcomes (including without limitation childcare).

Better Future Leader Investments” are companies that, at the time of acquisition, have a Perennial-derived Environmental, Social, Governance and Engagement Score (ESG&E Score), which exceeds the weighted ESG&E score of the benchmark index and does not satisfy the Better Future Enabler Investments definition.

The ESG&E Score is a proprietary scoring system that has been developed by Perennial Better Future. Perennial Better Future uses the ESG&E Score to evaluate a company’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance. As part of the ESG&E Score, the Investment Manager undertakes an assessment on each individual ESG component and considers relevant factors as part of its assessment. These factors include, but are not limited to:

  • Environmental – greenhouse gas emission disclosures, alignment with the Paris Agreement and environmental impact of operations.
  • Social – executive diversity, occupational health and safety and modern slavery risks in supply chains.
  • Governance – Board independence, board expertise and skill mix, and remuneration policies.

The ESG&E Score also assesses the company’s ‘Engagement’ on ESG related issues and subjectively assesses to what extent the company is engaged with improving ESG and sustainability outcomes within the business. The ESG&E Scoring methodology applies a 20% weighting to each ‘Environmental’, ‘Social’ and ‘Governance’ component and applies a 40% weighting to ‘Engagement’. This provides a total weighted score out of 10, which is then compared with the benchmark’s weighted average ESG&E score. Factors such as the outcome of Perennial Better Future’s engagement with company management and directors will also be considered as part of the company’s assessment. Perennial Better Future may also take into account external information such as publicly available data, financial disclosures, annual reports, sustainability reports, the company’s website, stockbroker research and external data sources.

Typically, no less than 35% of the portfolio will be held in Better Future Enabler Investments.

Negative Screens

  • the manufacture, distribution or sale of tobacco or alcohol products, including electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) as defined by the US Food and Drug Administration (e.g. ‘vaping’ devices, e-cigarettes) alternatively described as nicotine vaping products (NVP);
  • the manufacture, distribution or sale of weapons or armaments;
  • extraction or sale of thermal coal, metallurgical coal, uranium, oil or gas (other than recycled oil);
  • gambling or betting operations;
