With the "Focus Sustainability" portfolio management mandate, we offer a forward-looking asset management solution to private clients who wish to invest sustainably. It combines positive effects for people and the environment with long-term financial benefits.
We invest exclusively in instruments that meet our high standards for sustainability. To achieve this, we apply strict sustainability criteria when selecting investment instruments. These are reflected in the five key features of the "Focus Sustainability" portfolio management mandate:
Our LGT portfolio managers consistently apply exclusion criteria for companies and countries for our sustainable portfolio management mandates. When selecting countries, for example, we exclude countries that severely disregard human rights. Sustainable portfolio management also excludes controversial weapons and coal, a principle that applies throughout LGT.
The ESG criteria (environment, social and governance) are used to assess the sustainability of companies and countries. LGT's portfolio managers invest in instruments with an LGT sustainability rating of four or five stars, i.e. exclusively in instruments that have an above-average sustainability score in their respective segment.
Our portfolio managers exclusively choose shares of companies that have a smaller environmental footprint than their competitors. In doing so, they consider greenhouse gas emissions, water and energy consumption and waste generation.
Our portfolio managers add a targeted selection of sustainable themed investments to the portfolio that contribute toward resolving global challenges such as water scarcity. This is mainly achieved by investing in funds or exchange-traded funds (ETFs).
Unsere Portfoliomanager nehmen in der Regel nur Unternehmen auf, die einen positiven Gesamtbeitrag zu den United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).
Depending on your risk tolerance, we offer four investment profiles:
