Choose socially responsible investments

Do you want to invest in a socially responsible manner? No problem!

socially responsible investment

You care for the world around you. You care for yourself and for others, now and in generations to come. You want everyone to have a bright future. You want to invest, but not in just anything.
Socially responsible investments have a positive influence on every aspect of the environment and society. You invest in companies and countries that have been put through a strict selection procedure. They each have socially responsible goals, have already earned their stripes, think with an eye for the future and are transparent in communicating on what progress they're making.

Socially responsible investing is a conscious choice

  • You want not only a financial return but also to invest in creating a better society.
  • You want a world that is habitable for you, other people and the next generations.
  • You're looking for investments that are accord with your own values.

It's worth it. For everybody.

Green investments

When you make a socially responsible investment, you're investing in a better society and seeking to make a positive return.  Both internal and external studies show that, in the long term, you can expect a socially responsible investment to generate a return that's in line with the market and need not be below that on similar, 'classic' investment funds.

That's because sustainable companies and countries deliver quality. They have a strong, clear long-term vision and consider things carefully before taking decisions. As an investor, you can reap the benefits of that.
