Individual assessments and objectives will include qualitative and quantitative elements related to the environmental or social characteristics of the investments and the sustainability risk of the portfolios managed. The evaluations and remuneration of the staff concerned will be determined on the basis of the achievement of these qualitative and quantitative objectives. The management of these sustainability risks is intrinsically linked to the activity of an asset manager for whom it is imperative to take these long-term issues into account in its investment strategy in view of the duration of holding the assets in the portfolio.
