We strongly believe that we should work in the - long term - interest of the clients that have a mandate with us. This is translated in a maximum allignment of interests between our clients and ourselves, a persuit of a good financial return for our clients while limiting the potential drawdowns. The maximum allignment is obtained by limiting our revenues to the management fee we charge (so no "top up of custody, transaction or other fees, nor hidden costs). We believe that in the longer term we serve our clients well by investing in companies / countries that score well on an ESG level as we believe that it offers returns that are at least similar to "traditional" investments while reducing the potential drawdown. Moreover there is the aditional "bonus" of trying to contribute to a "better , fairer world"
