At Pictet Asset Management we offer a complete spectrum of investment solution that incorporate ESG factors in multiple ways. These include:
1. ESG Integration into long-only strategies (eg equity & fixed fincome long only strategies). This is driven by our conviction that ESG considerations can help us make better long-term investment decisions.
2. Best-in-class strategies (eg European Sustainable Equities, Emerging Sustainable Equities, Swiss Sustainable Equities, Global Sustainable Credit, Sustainable EMD Blend). These are designed for clients who wish to actively support and benefit from superior corporate responsability.
3. Environmenta/ Social thematic strategies (eg Global Environmental Opportunities, Nutrition, Clean Energy, Timber, Water, Smart City, Biotech, Health). These offer the possibility to invest in products and services that provide solutions to environmental problems. ESG factors are fully integrated into company analysis.
In all three cases we apply a firm-wide exclusion of companies involved in controversial weapons.
