Sustainability in the Group
Socially Responsible Investment is about managing investments while taking into consideration environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) criteria, as well as traditional financial factors, in the process of analysing and assembling investment portfolios.
Building on this analysis, we obtain a better and more complete assessment of potential investments, subsequently providing added value to our clients’ investments, and achieving a more efficient decision making process in the long term.
