Lombard Odier wins Impact Investing and Philanthropy awards

Lombard Odier is pleased to announce that it won “Best Private Bank for Socially Responsible and Impact Investing” and “Best Private Bank in Europe for Philanthropy Services” at the prestigious Banker/Professional Wealth Management Global Private Banking Awards 2017, held in London on 26 October.

The awards, hosted by the Financial Times, gather qualitative and quantitative information from private banks, which are judged by an independent panel on the progress made in their business strategy and in boosting inflows and profits. The winners are judged on how their relationship and portfolio management, asset allocation and product strategy are adapting to meet investors’ changing needs. The organisers receive over 170 submissions from over 60 countries worldwide.

For the “Best Private Bank for Socially Responsible and Impact Investing” award, judges responded to the strength of our proprietary investment and issuer analysis – which marries rigorous environmental, social and governance (ESG) scoring with innovative analysis of a company’s ‘consciousness, actions and results’ (CAR). The judges also considered this year’s host of innovative impact solution launches, including the Global Climate Bond Fund, the Global Responsible Equity Strategy and impact model portfolios.

For the “Best Private Bank in Europe for Philanthropy Services” award, judges took into consideration our innovative financing solutions, including the ground-breaking new humanitarian debt transaction with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). As well as pioneering new philanthropic models, we also highlighted how we work in partnership with third party providers, how we focus our charitable giving on innovation, and the value we can add through our philanthropy advisory process.

The awards were collected by Lombard Odier’s Head of Impact Office Bertrand Gacon, and Global Head of Philanthropy Maximilian Martin, at a gala evening at the Four Seasons Hotel on Park Lane in London. Also in attendance were Robert de Guigné and Guillaume Bonnel from our Impact Office, Mara de Monte from our philanthropy team, Anna Josse, founder of Prism the Gift Fund, Michael Le Garignon and Tatyana Kravchenko from our Independent Asset Managers team, and London banker Dylan Samuel.

These awards add to a host of other gongs Lombard Odier has received this year, including “Western Europe’s Best Bank for Wealth Management” at the Euromoney Awards for Excellence 2017 and “Private Bank of the Year, Boutique” at the Citywealth Magic Circle Awards 2017.
