Responsible Investment

Increase the integration of environmental, social and governance issues into investment decisions and expand our product and service offering for a positive impact economy.

ESG: the three letters that mobilize the financial market for an increasingly sustainable economy.

When we invest, we expect a return in the future. But in which future are we investing our resources? We believe that environmental, social, and corporate governance factors are important long-term performance drivers for companies.

As such, we integrate ESG factors into our investment process through a proprietary analysis methodology that aims to estimate the financial impact of these issues on traditional valuation models.

We are committed to responsible investing, so we offer the investing public a diverse shelf of products and services for a positive impact economy.
