At Mercier Vanderlinden Asset Management (MVAM) ethical principles are fully integrated in our philosophy and mentality. We are convinced that "sustainability" is not best achieved by merely avoiding certain sectors or companies in the portfolio, but rather by actively reflecting and engaging on the necessary topics. This active ethical behaviour is realised in both the management of the entrusted assets as well as the organisation of MVAM itself. In addition, as a boutique house, we use trusted, third-party enterprises such as Sustainalytics in order to safeguard our ethical and sustainability principles with a bigger impact than could be achieved by doing it alone.
