Vontobel invests in companies providing innovative solutions and technologies across the value chain of manufacturing, logistics and consumption.

Vontobel's investment approach is concentrated around groups of companies operating in the following areas:

  •  Resource-efficient industry
  •  Building technology
  •  Clean energy infrastructure
  •  Low emission transportation
  •  Lifecycle management
  •  Clean water
