Invest in a sustainable future

Responsibility towards long-term economic value

Companies need to raise the bar and come up with new solutions to secure the future of our planet. And we feel committed to support their efforts and influence them in a positive way.

But how do we do this?

We have developed our policies, procedures and investment products to ensure that the companies we invest in all live up to various criteria of sound environmental, social and governance performance.

We believe that by engaging and investing in ambitious companies, we can make a considerable difference; by selecting quality companies with highly sustainable profiles and a high potential of generating economic value with a low risk.

By combining financial performance with responsibility, we strive to offer our clients sustainable solutions. To ensure sustainable practices, we make thorough research and performance monitoring. We also visit companies to help and motivate them to tackle environmental, social and governance issues.
