Motorcyclists switching from conventional fuel to electric will certainly want to know whether an electric motorcycle can deliver the acceleration they are accustomed to on the road. The answer is yes!
There is a stubbornly held view that sustainable investments can only be achieved with a reduction in financial performance.
The truth is that what applies to the transition to electromobility also applies to sustainable investment: No compromise on performance is required. Return on sustainable investments is comparable to that on conventional investments. This has been scientifically proven several times recently. We firmly believe that companies and countries that act sustainably have considerable competitive advantages in the long term, because they are more successful at incorporating relevant current and future challenges into their strategies. As an investor, you not only participate in their performance, but also choose a smart approach to contribute to the well-being of present and future generations.
For us, sustainability does not begin merely with explicitly sustainable funds. In recent years, we have firmly established the principle of sustainability in the Swisscanto fund range.
We have developed a sophisticated multi-stage selection process to ensure that we select the best equities and bonds for you.
We consistently and responsibly exercise voting rights across the board – in other words, in all investment vehicles. We publish our sustainability guidelines on the exercising of voting rights and our very specific voting behaviour.
The most well known and widely practised step for sustainable investments is the use of exclusion criteria. This eliminates certain companies and countries from the outset, such as arms manufacturers.
Sustainability is increasingly being used as an assessment criterion for reducing investment risks – by both companies and investors. But how do companies make their risks transparent and measurable? The sustainable link between companies and investors/analysts is founded on what are known as the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria. We use these criteria to make companies' sustainability risks and efforts highly transparent.
We anchor the issue of sustainability in relation to our entire fund range on the three steps of exclusion, ESG and exercising of voting rights. For those investors who seek a high or the highest sustainable efficiency of their investment strategy, we can offer the product lines „Responsible“ and „Sustainable“.
