For more than 20 years, Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) has been integrated into our investment policy. Our long experience and well-functioning investment process are reflected, among other things, in our range of investment products that meet ESG- and sustainability criteria.
Our investment strategy is based on selecting investment products that meet 3 criteria: environmental (E), social (S) and good governance (G). These ESG criteria are widely accepted around the world as the way to build a more sustainable business and society. Thanks to the filter we use, your portfolio is not exposed to major ESG-risks. We do not invest in companies with poor governance or controversial activities. This means you do not have to worry about a negative impact on your return if such companies suddenly come under negative public scrutiny or suffer serious reputational damage, causing the value of the shares to plummet. Thanks to these ESG-investments, we are collectively making a positive and sustainable impact on our environment, step by step.

Researching and selecting investment opportunities has been part of our core business since 1871. Since 2001, we have also been analyzing and selecting investment opportunities that meet ESG- and sustainability criteria. Our experience in researching, analyzing, and selecting stocks that meet these ESG- and sustainability criteria, enables us to achieve robust long-term returns.
The commitment of citizen-consumers to think and act more sustainably is pushing governments and also companies to take these ESG-criteria very seriously, it must be about more than greenwashing. We analyze these companies and, if they meet ESG-conditions, select their shares and bonds for inclusion in our investment portfolios. In this way, through a wide range of investments that take environmental, social and governance issues into account, you too can contribute as a citizen-investor to a better future for our collective environment.
