Investing in a sustainable and responsible manner has rapidly become a much more important consideration for banks, asset managers, their clients, shareholders and society at large. At EFG we believe when selecting and managing investments we must take ESG criteria into account. Despite its many challenges we see integration as the most sensible approach to meet the requirements of our investors and the broader aims of the economy, the environment and society. Although this will be an evolving journey, it is our intention to clarify our approach to this significant topic through the selection of the below explanatory pieces.
Our commitment is demonstrated through being a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and the Swiss Sustainable Finance (SSF) association (through EFG Switzerland). These mutually enriching partnerships collectively define, assess and face the challenges and opportunities linked to the wide range of issues covered by ESG criteria.
