sponsorship.

At Lombard Odier, it is our fiduciary duty to preserve and grow our client’s wealth. And we understand that it’s in everyone’s best interests to build a more sustainable, equitable world. This conviction has always been at the heart of our approach to doing business and our sponsorship projects.

That is why we sponsor a range of projects in the fields of sustainable development and innovation.

Sustainability has always been central to the way we do business. We were one of the first firms to integrate social and environmental criteria into our financial research. Today, we have a range of sustainable products and strategies in order to transition towards a Circular, Lean, Inclusive and Clean (CLIC™) economy. We believe this transition will drive returns in the coming decades.

In 2020, Lombard Odier and the University of Oxford announced the launch of a new multi-year sponsorship programme to foster research and teaching on sustainable finance and investment, with a particular focus on climate change, circular economy and nature. The partnership between Oxford University, one of the oldest centres of higher education; and Lombard Odier, an outspoken leader in the field of sustainable investing; is providing a unique platform for knowledge exchange between scholarship and financial services.

CERN.

Since 2018, sponsoring bank Lombard Odier has partnered with CERN in committing three years of financial support to six talented PhD students in particle physics research via the CERN & Society Foundation. The young researchers selected to receive an ATLAS grant will continue their studies in Geneva as part of an international collaboration involving 181 institutions and agencies from 38 countries. The PhD students will take part in the ATLAS experiment, which consists of two general-purpose detectors at the Large Hadron Collider, used for investigating a wide range of physics, from the search for the Higgs boson, to extra dimensions and the particles that could make up dark matter. They will be under excellent supervision and training while working alongside leading specialists.
