Ever since its founding in 1819, Mirabaud has always favoured a sustainable philosophy, a long term vision and a responsible mind-set.

Since Mirabaud signed the UNPRI in 2010, environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities have been formalized and strengthened through additional research provisions. This added analysis gives our fund managers an even clearer picture of long-term sector-based trends and risks as well as better assessment of a company’s value.

Our pragmatic ESG integration approach is completed by an active shareholder dialogue on ESG material issues. By engaging with a company's management and by exercising our voting rights, we gain insights into a company's strategy and management to eventually reinforce the portfolio managers' convictions.
