Description

          We provide our clients and advisors with lunch learnings and evening events. The client advisors are sensitized: Six years ago, all of the approximately 70 employees with a focus on investment consulting had already attended a securities seminar on "Sustainable Investments". Following the launch of the sustainable pension funds in 2017, approximately 400 client advisors were trained for the new products and the BEKB sustainability approach. In 2018, the topic was deepened during additional training sequences. 

Throughout 2019, sustainability was at the centre of activities and events in the investment customer business - it is to become an integral part of the dialogue with customers. In the year under review, BEKB launched a blog under the motto "When, if not now". In around 50 articles to date, it shows how consumers can assume responsibility and contribute to sustainable development.
