ESG at Quality Growth
As a global investment firm, Vontobel plays a responsible, active role in the sustainable transformation of our society and economy. We reflect this in our governance, investment philosophy and operational processes.
Many of our investment solutions focus on companies and industries that contribute to sustainable transformation and manage associated risks. In this way, Vontobel helps create new opportunities for investors.
Our ESG investment philosophy is the common ground of all our ESG and sustainable investment solutions and reflects our conviction about ESG. Our investment boutiques are highly specialized. Thus, the implementation of our ESG integration philosophy is tailored to our investment strategies.
We use multiple sources of information to build a holistic picture around investment opportunities.
We conduct our own research and enrich standard ESG data sources to develop our own perspective.
We believe that active ownership adds value through partnership and dialogue between investors, management and other stakeholders.
We monitor ESG risks and controversies on a continuous basis.
We strongly believe our messaging must match our investment process to provide an honest picture to our clients.
Each of our boutiques draws on specialist investment talent, a strong performance culture, and robust risk management. Each boutique has therefore developed an ESG approach, detailed below, which is relevant to their asset class, beliefs and style of investing.
