WHAT We Aim to Achieve
We strive to achieve sustainable growth through the daily creation of economic value while making a positive impact on our people and the environment in which we operate. In short, we aim to invest responsibly.
We believe sustainable business practices that tackle local and global socio-economic challenges not only serve the community but can also enhance returns. Today, the management of over a quarter of the world’s assets is taking into consideration environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors that can materially affect a company’s performance and market value (McKinsey)* Furthermore, we believe the moral case to invest in sustainable businesses is even stronger for family-owned corporations as the importance of a company’s sustainability can help to favor more long-term perspectives.
