APEX Elite Management is an entity registered with the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (“CSSF”) as an AIFM under the terms of the Law of 12 July 2013 on alternative investment fund managers (“AIFM Law”)

Integration of sustainability risks in the investment decision process

A sustainability risk refers to an environmental, social or governance (ESG) event or condition that, if it occurs, could cause an actual or a potential material negative impact on the value of an investment. The definition of sustainability risk refers to environmental, social and governance events or conditions, however there is no regulatory definition for these events or conditions. The EU Taxonomy refers to the following criteria, activities, and practices in relation to ESG:

Environment: climate change, sustainable use and protection of water and marine resources, transition to a circular economy, waste prevention and recycling, pollution prevention control and protection of healthy ecosystems.

Social: equality, social cohesion, social integration, and labour relations.

Governance: sound management structures, employee relations, remuneration of relevant staff and tax compliance.The AIFM reviews and assesses potential sustainability risks within the meaning of SFDR as part of its decision-making process and ongoing risk monitoring with respect to investments made or to be made by the Fund and has integrated such review within its internal procedures and policies, as further detailed hereafter.

Relevance of sustainability risks

Sustainability risks may affect the Fund’s performance having regard to the types of investments made or to be made in accordance with its investment policy and objectives, meaning that if any such risk occurs, returns on investments may be materially negatively affected as a result. Investors and potential investors should note that it is difficult to assess with reasonable certainty the probability of the occurrence of such risks and the likely impact of such materialized sustainability risks on the value of investments.

ESG risk assessment process
The AIFM generally considers materially relevant sustainability risks into the investment process alongside with other material factors. The degree to which sustainability risks will be taken into account may vary from one product to another and may depend on the product scoping and concrete structuring of each individual product. The AIFM considers sustainability risks assessment as a mean of identifying investment opportunities, managing and monitoring investment risk, and therefore integrate this assessment in their investment decisions and their due diligence processes in order to maximize the long-term risk-adjusted return. When deciding whether ESG data are material for a particular investment, the AIFM shall evaluate the relevance of the information and the likely impact on the financial return of the investment in the context of the particular fund’s investment strategy. Indeed, even if the fund concerned does not pursue or promote ESG objectives for the moment nor has sustainable investments’ objectives, it remains exposed to sustainability risks. The identification and assessment of risks, including sustainability risks, will take place on an ongoing basis if and when investments are made in accordance with the Fund’s investment
policy. Such review is performed by the AIFM as summarized below:

Prior to an investment decision being taken on behalf of the Fund, the AIFM identify the material risks, including sustainability risks, associated with the proposed investment;

These risks form part of the overall investment proposal to be submitted to the board of managers of the AIFM;

Ultimately and following its assessment, the AIFM makes the relevant investment decision having regard to the Fund’s investment policy and objectives and subject to the board of managers’ approval

The identification, assessment and, to the extent possible, mitigation of sustainability risks is embedded into the above process.

Transparency of remuneration policies in relation to the integration of sustainability risks – article 5(1)

For the purposes of article 5(1) of SFDR, the AIFM declares that it has not put in place a remuneration policy in light of the fact that it qualifies as a registered alternative investment fund manager and thus does not fall under such requirement under the AIFMD.

No consideration of adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors – article 4(1)(b)

Article 4(1) of the SFDR requires fund managers such as the AIFM to provide a clear statement as to whether or not they consider the “principal adverse impacts” of investment decisions on sustainability factors, i.e. environmental, social and employee matters, respect for human rights, anti-corruption and anti-bribery matters. Although ESG and sustainability risks are important to the AIFM, the latter does not consider the adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors in the manner
prescribed by article 4(1) of the SFDR, in particular due to the fact that (i) no reliable and sufficiently available or accessible data are available to perform such impact measurement and provide the mandatory reporting imposed by the regulatory technical standards in a consistent manner; (ii) the investment strategy and objectives of the fund managed by the AIFM and thus its overall portfolio are neither ESG-focused nor, in the opinion of the AIFM, likely to have an impact on sustainability factors and (iii) the underlying investments are not generally required to, and may not currently, report on such factors. This position shall remain subject to ongoing review in line with the regulatory developments.

Fund-related disclosures: Transparency of other financial products in pre-contractual disclosuresand in periodic reports – article 7 of the Taxonomy Regulation
Furthermore, with reference to Article 7 of Regulation (EU) 2020/852 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 June 2020 on the establishment of a framework to facilitate sustainable investment, and amending Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 (“EU Taxonomy”), supplementing art 6 of SFDR, it should be noted that currently, the investments underlying the financial product (the assets of the AIFM’s fund under management), do not take into account the EU criteria for environmentally sustainable economic activities.
