Corbin is proactive in its efforts to sensibly incorporate responsible and sustainable business practices into our organization. We seek to continuously improve our ESG efforts at the organizational and investment level as appropriate. We encourage many of our manager-partners to do the same and look to be a resource for them.

Corbin’s ESG policy is available upon request. The policy outlines the values and guiding principles underpinning Corbin’s efforts to promote ESG awareness, the way the firm evaluates ESG integration across the managers it works with, and the approach to integration and engagement for ESG-focused portfolios. Corbin’s approach to ESG is evolving and there is no guarantee that Corbin will be able to successfully achieve all the objectives outlined in this ESG policy or guarantee that managers it engages will successfully integrate ESG factors and risks into their firm and investment decision making process. A significant part of Corbin's ESG integration process involves an attempt to engage, influence and monitor the ESG practices of managers we work with. Corbin’s engagement approach may vary based on the specific engagement plan for each manager and may include in person meetings with management and investment personnel, conference calls and questionnaires. It is difficult to quantify the exact financial benefits of ESG integration, ESG focused investing and the extent to which a manager integrates ESG into its investment process will vary and be subject to interpretation. Approaches to ESG analysis are not standardized and are inherently qualitative and subjective. As such, there is no guarantee that the criteria utilized by a manager, or any judgment exercised by a certain manager, will reflect the beliefs or values of any particular investor. There are also significant differences in interpretations of what positive ESG characteristics mean by region, industry, and sector. Corbin’s interpretations and decisions are expected to differ from others’ views of ESG and could also evolve over time. As such, the policy is subject to change as Corbin’s ESG integration and engagement process evolves and guidance and regulation around ESG investing matures. In addition, in evaluating a manager or investment, Corbin expects to depend heavily upon information and data provided by a variety of sources, including the manager being evaluated and/or various third-party providers which could be incomplete, inaccurate, or unavailable, and which could cause Corbin to incorrectly assess a manager’s ESG practices and/or related risks and opportunities. Corbin does not intend to independently verify all ESG information reported by managers or third parties. Lastly, Corbin makes no guarantee that it will be successful in achieving its objectives related to promoting ESG integration and adoption as success relies heavily on the steps taken by managers over which Corbin has limited influence.

ESG-oriented investments are those with positive environmental, social, and/or governance characteristics alongside and complementary to attractive risk/return profile.
