Investment Policy Statement

Investment Policy Statement

The Investment Policy Statement of the Office of Investment Management (OIM) lays out our approach to Sustainable Investing.

OIM strives to ensure that all of its activities integrate the ideals of sustainable investing, including taking into account environmental, social and governance (ESG) metrics, while remaining entirely consistent with our fiduciary responsibility to meet our Long-Term Investment Objective.

The Fund acknowledges its responsibility to society as part of an international organization committed to social progress by being a founding signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and its association with the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Finance Initiative.

The Fund restricts investments in the tobacco industry and in the securities of companies producing controversial weapons, including weapons of mass destruction.  OIM is using a customized equity benchmark provided by a leading index provider to reflect these restrictions for internally managed public equity portfolios.
