Sustainability-related disclosures pursuant to Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 (“SFDR”)
Date of update: [•] (explanation of amendments: linguistic adjustments and adjustments to reflect the evolving market practice as well as recent guidance from European institutions)
I. Sustainability risks
Sustainability risks are environmental, social or governance events or conditions, the occurrence of which could have an actual or potential material adverse effect on the value of an investment of Foundamental Management GmbH (the “Manager”, LEI: 391200OL7MR0CLUFJO87) considers sustainability risks as part of the due diligence process prior to any investment. This also includes an assessment of sustainability risks. Such assessment is being conducted through an informal process as appropriate in light of the circumstances of the individual case. The results of such assessment are taken into account on a non-binding basis prior to taking any investment decision, provided that the principle of proportionality shall at all times be respected in dealing with sustainability risks taking due account of the strategic relevance of an investment as well as its transactional context.
II. No consideration of adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors
Sustainability factors are environmental, social and employee concerns, respect for human rights and the fight against corruption and bribery. The Manager does not consider adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors. Also, no sustainability indicators as listed in Annex I of the Regulatory Technical Standards (C(2022) 1931 final, “RTS”) are currently being used.
The Manager pursues an active investment strategy with a focus on assets in the construction sector. The burden associated with considering adverse impacts on sustainability factors (particularly if sustainability indicators are used) would be disproportionate in light of the rather limited relevance we expect such impacts to have in the context of the Manager’s investment strategy. Moreover, given that the SFDR, the Regulation (EU) 2020/852 (“Taxonomy”) and the accompanying RTS are still quite new legislative acts, there is very little or no practical experience or practice with regard to applying their respective provisions. Therefore, substantial legal uncertainties would remain when applying those provisions to the strategies pursued by the Manager. What is more, the Manager’s funds will only hold minority interests in their portfolio companies. Such minority interests are, however, generally not sufficient to encourage the funds’ portfolio companies to collect and provide the relevant data. If and to the extent that these uncertainties will be resolved and a practicable market and administrative practice will evolve in this regard, the Manager will re-evaluate following them in due course.
III. Remuneration disclosures
As a registered alternative investment fund manager within the meaning of section 2 (4) of the German Investment Code (Kapitalanlagegesetzbuch, “KAGB”), the Manager does not have and does not need to have a remuneration guideline or policy in accordance with the requirements of the KAGB. Sustainability risks are not considered with respect to the determination of the remuneration.
