CAPACITY FOR INNOVATION
Capacity for innovation is built over time. It is fostered through experience, expertise and through paying the closest attention to identifying the transformational trends in the area of sustainable investing. On this basis, from the outset we chose the Best-in-universe approach, which for a long time was used by only a small minority.
We have followed the Responsible Investment path since 2007, when we launched an equity strategy linked to renewable energies. Our Responsible Investment team has 50 years of combined experience in ESG.
We also made the choice at a very early stage, back in 2010, to commit to the PRI. Our experience curve was built in close collaboration with our clients, in particular those institutional clients for whom we have managed SRI mandates since 2011.
Recently, Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management has highlighted the role of the quality of companies’ management teams and the strength of intangibles in companies’ performance. We expressed this innovative thinking in an investment strategy focused on Human Capital launched in 2020.
Now, with our private markets expertise in private equity, real estate and infrastructure integrated with our liquid markets capability, we can increasingly deliver an integrated range of solutions, with investments in the asset classes our clients need to respond to the challenges of key themes like Environment and Energy Transition.
INVESTMENTS WITH A POSITIVE IMPACT
We are deeply convinced that finance should fuel the real economy and contribute to building the world of tomorrow. That is why we are accelerating the development of our expertise across all business lines and asset classes, liquid and Private Markets, on forward-looking themes like energy & environmental transition, real estate and urban development, and Human Capital.
STRONG FOCUS ON SOCIETAL INVESTMENTS
Whilst the investment teams aim to generate long-term financial returns, they also aim to drive positive change for society and the world in which we live. We invest in projects which directly impact on societal change whether in liquid assets or in private markets.
