Calvert's Four Pillars of Responsible Investing

Our first responsibility is to seek strong portfolio returns.
We conduct deep, proprietary research focused on material ESG issues.
As shareholders, we actively engage with companies to help drive performance and social value.
We believe the impact of your investments should be material and measurable.

Portfolio Construction

Analysts assign relative risk rankings to each loan
Quintile ranking structure: 1 = lower risk, 5 = higher risk
Number of loans approximately equal weighted by risk quintile
Market value incrementally skewed toward lower risk
Initial position sizes range from 0.1% to 1.5% as determined by risk rank
