The European Union has introduced a series of legal measures (the primary one being the Sustainable Finance Disclosures Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2019/2088) requiring firms that manage investment funds to provide transparency on how they integrate sustainability considerations into the investment process with respect to the investment funds they manage.
At LGT Capital Partners, we believe that investors, and asset managers that invest on their behalf, have a responsibility to make their investments in a way that effectively supports a sustainable society.
At the core of commitment to help our clients achieve their financial objectives is a conviction that this can be achieved by investing responsibly.
We value the importance of integrating Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors into our investment and risk processes and fundamentally believe that this is aligned with the aim of achieving long-term positive financial performance for our investors. We also recognise and value the fact that this will also support the better functioning of companies we invest in, enhancing behaviour in a wide range of markets and industries and having a positive societal impact beyond the financial markets.
