Source: Costacredit, as of December 31, 2021. Our ESG specialized product offerings are included in our definition of ESG AUM. A portfolio or account must have binding ESG criteria above the minimal regulatory standards in order to fall within the category of ESG AUM. This categorization is assessed independently and separately from any ESG factor inclusion into the core investment process. This method of categorization covers portfolios or accounts with criteria as diverse as simple exclusionary screening, thematic tactics, and multi-pronged ESG optimization schemes.
