Cardano Risk Management BV and Cardano Risk Management Limited have a Remuneration Policy. The Group Remuneration Committee oversees adherence to the Policy. As well as local regulatory requirements, the Remuneration Policy takes into account the CEBS Guidelines on Remuneration Policies and Practices and EBA remuneration guidelines.
Colleague performance is assessed against the objectives set at the start of the performance year for each employee. These colleague objectives are derived from the wider business strategic objectives. This ensures colleague performance is assessed based on contribution to the business strategic objectives including sustainability risk management. The colleague objectives contain at least one objective regarding sustainability.
Good risk management increases profit and the profit sharing pool available and profit share awards / variable remuneration will be adjusted for a material failure of risk management by an employee or business unit. In this way the Remuneration Policy ensures that the remuneration strategies of Cardano Risk Management BV and Cardano Risk Management Limited are aligned with the corporate risk profile, risk appetite, and business strategy, and do not encourage employees to take risks that run counter to either Cardano’s or clients’ long-term interests.
In addition to the Remuneration Policy, sustainability risks are managed through the Corporate and Investment Sustainability policies and the alignment of our investment approach and policies with clients’ appetites for sustainable investment exposures underpinned by the integration of ESG risk management.
This ensures that sustainability risk management is integrated into colleagues day to day activity, whether it be approach to travel, the use of technology, decisions in respect to the selection of Cardano offices, managing ESG risks in investment portfolios or developing strategies that include sustainable investment exposures.
