DBI/ RDT – Sustainable investing in global equites for the long–term – “Greatness is Sustainability”
We firmly believe in finding quality companies and holding them for the very long term to achieve quality investment performance to meet our clients’ expectations with associated benefits to society.
In this session Jonathan will discuss what makes a quality company and why sustainability, diversity, the environment, technology, growth, investment, innovation and return on capital are at the heart of it. Our focus on absolute return tends to make this fund defensive in down markets. The fund has an ultra-low carbon footprint and a very high ESG score which is why it has a Febelfin label.
BNP Paribas Asset Mgmt launched its 1st SRI fund in 2001 and has been a global leader in sustainable investing ever since.
