The management of our investments is based on two strategic objectives. This is, firstly, the systematic integration of ESG criteria for all asset classes and, secondly, consistency with the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.
We use the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) as a framework for sustainable action in the area of investments. To implement them, we have established Group-wide approaches, Responsible Investment Guidelines (RIG) and clear governance. Together, they contain all ESG requirements that affect Helvetia's asset management and anchor them in the entire investment process: from the investment strategy to the selection of asset managers and portfolio management to reporting.
