Investment Management

TY Danjuma Family Office and our principal fund-management partner have a wealth of combined expertise in asset management, private debt and direct lending.

We have a captive multi-asset fund for liquid wealth, employing a conservative investment approach managed by a regulated fund manager based in Singapore. We have also built secure relationships with many leading international banks.

We cover a wide range of investments and we have delivered positive long-term performance outcomes through a combination of attractive assets.

Our approach to Responsible Investment

In October 2012, TY Danjuma Family Office became a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI): a global, collaborative network of investors – established in 2006 – that recognises the increasing relevance of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues within the investment process. This means that, where appropriate and consistent with our fiduciary duties, we consider investment implications associated with ESG issues within our portfolio management and investment decision-making processes.

We recognise that, by applying these principles, investors may be better aligned with broader society-related objectives. Therefore, where consistent with our fiduciary responsibilities, we commit to:

  • Incorporating ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes
  • Becoming active owners and including ESG issues in our ownership policies and practices
  • Seeking appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities in which we invest in
  • Promoting acceptance and the implementation of principles within the investment industry
  • Working together to enhance the way we implement principles
  • Reporting on our activities and progress towards implementing principles

Our procedures for responsible investment are intended to ensure the securities we invest in are not placed in companies that violate internationally recognised standards. We screen our investment portfolios against a number of internationally recognised standards and guidelines for human rights, arms, working conditions, the environment, anti-corruption and others. Plus, we apply negative screens for stocks from industries traditionally considered to have a negative impact on society, such as alcohol, drugs, firearms and weapons, tobacco, gambling and pornography. Any company with more than 10% turnover from activities in these areas will not be included in our fund (this is an approach taken by the TY Global Conservative Fund).
