A long-term focus on sustainable investments is a core part of our corporate culture.
LGT Capital Partners' long-held commitment to ESG began in 2003, when we first began integrating responsible investment provisions into our investment programs.
We were among the first alternative investment managers to set up client programs as regulated structures in Ireland and Luxembourg, which benefit from high standards of corporate governance.
In 2009, LGT Capital Partners launched dedicated sustainable bond and equity offerings. The firm has been one of the first alternative investment firms to sign upon the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), becoming a signatory in 2008.
We are also a signatory to the Montreal Carbon Pledge.
