We seek long-term excellent returns. We realize that long-term investing is only possible with sustainable investee entities. Our policy and processes firm wide have been developed and designed to achieve this as efficiently as possible. Therefore we have integrated ESG into all our strategies and asset classes, including external partners.

Real economy impact will be delivered over time. If we adhere to our sustainable strategy, we have good reasons to believe that positive impact will be generated. Sometimes, these impacts can be even estimated early on, and we have products that actively source investments that directly have large global impacts while benefiting the investee entities along the way.

Generally, we follow and report regularly on all areas of ESG and the tools we use in our integrated processes vary depending on the asset class, but they are firmly anchored in our processes.

We are committed to constantly developing our sustainability/ESG approach. We feel important to understand our clients' ESG preferences and to share transparently and openly about our ESG approach and practices in each our asset classes (fixed income and equity, PE and real estate). In addition, we provide regular ESG reporting regarding each asset class for our clients.
