Sustainable Investing in Switzerland

Sustainably managed assets in Switzerland grew strongly. Within the space of a year, the volume rose by around CHF 500 billion to CHF 1,260 billion (+62%). This is the result of an annual study by Swiss Sustainable Finance (SSF), Switzerland’s leading body on sustainable finance. CHF 470 billion, or 38% of all fund assets, are invested in sustainable investment funds. The classification is based on a self-assessment by the asset managers, who also indicate which sustainability approach they use to manage the assets. The integration of ESG information is mentioned most frequently, followed by the application of exclusion criteria.

Tailwinds for Our Portfolio Companies!

We go into depth on these tailwinds and discuss, which specific themes are covered by our approach and where we see key opportunities for investors.

Circular World Index - For the sparing use of valuable resources

Our consumer society is not very sustainable. The consumption of resources is immense. Many people have realised that something has to change and that the transition to a circular economy should be completed as quickly as possible. The investment community has also long since recognized the opportunities of such a change. One result of this recognition is the Vontobel Circular World Index.

New article on the Circular World Index. Andres Gujan speaks about the problem of scrap batteries and where we see opportunities.

Powered by renewable electricity, electric cars are slowly beginning to replace their non-electric counterparts. But can be done about the avalanche of old batteries that this will inevitably cause? Companies in the Circular World Index can provide answers.
