Controlled remuneration policy
Noesis B.V. has formulated and implemented a controlled remuneration policy to ensure that remuneration does not:
- Excessive risks are taken that could affect the financial soundness of the company.
- Clients carelessly treated by perverse reward incentives.
The persons employed by the company have periodic fixed remuneration, which is independent of the fees agreed with clients. As a result, the risk of careless treatment of clients is low.
As sustainability risks are not explicitly integrated into the investment decision process, the current remuneration policy of Noesis B.V. is in line with this.
The persons working at the company naturally ensure that the investment policy (including the handling of ESG criteria) is carefully propagated and implemented.
Noesis B.V. meets the legal requirements with its remuneration policy.

The equity is sufficient to meet the prudential capital requirements of DNB on an ongoing basis.

These include credit and counterparty risks, market risks, concentration risks, liquidity risks, interest rate risks as well as various operational, strategic and integrity risks.
