impact investing.

pioneers.

We call our approach Impact Investment. ‘Impact’, as we define it, is the sum of positive and negative, direct and indirect effects that a company’s operations and products have on the environment and on society. Not only is Impact Investing an innovative investment philosophy that has recorded one of the fastest growth rates on the market; it also challenges the way investors think about their social responsibility, returns on investment and investment risks.

But there’s always more to be done. So, we continually rethink our approach to increase both the depth and breadth of Impact Investment for the benefit of both our clients and the world we live in.

100% impact portfolio.

In the past, Impact Investing was a marginal strategy applied by only a handful of pioneering investors for part of their portfolios. Today, it occupies a central role in the investment philosophy of an increasing number of individual investors. But, for it to move from the margins into the mainstream, Impact Investing needs to reach all types of investors and cover all asset classes.

We were one of the first institutions to develop its own offering and reporting tools in the area of Impact Investing, and thus the first to give its clients concrete opportunities to have a sustainable impact on the environment, society and the world. Not only have we witnessed the development of Impact Investing over the last two decades, we have been at the forefront of deepening and broadening impact solutions.

That’s the mission of our Impact Office.
