Secure your legacy Make your investments matter. Drive change.
Nowadays, there is a lot more to investing than just generating financial returns. Today, we have the chance not only to increase our own personal wealth, but also to drive positive change by investing sustainably. If you are thinking about how your personal wealth can have a positive impact, there has never been a better time to invest.
There are variety of ways to invest with the greater good in mind. The focus of our Impact Advisory and Finance (IAF) department is to develop financial products that generate returns through sustainable and impact investing.
Sustainable investing refers to an investment strategy that considers environmental, social and governance (ESG) aspects alongside traditional valuation criteria in making investment decisions. Sustainable investments are often aligned with personal values and aim to provide healthy financial returns while fostering positive social and environmental change in line with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Our approach to sustainable investing
We take into account three core elements:
- An investor’s intention to generate social and environmental impact
- The investor’s contribution: Is it because of that specific investor that the company has access to capital?
- Measurable impact
When screening and constructing client portfolios, we also collaborate with our own experts in the fields of sustainability, impact, ESG, investment research, and portfolio management to apply a combination of sustainable investment approaches.
We think that investing in companies and initiatives that are mindful of ESG factors, and which combine purpose and profit, is just 'smart investing'.
