Ragaini: fintech and sustainability for portfolios to face the crisis
In an article in Corriere Economia, our Deputy General Manager Andrea Ragaini says: "We have combined fintech and sustainability and created a digital platform to develop portfolios in line with the saver's sustainability objectives, choosing among the products that invest in the 17 SDGs of the UN Agenda 2030 as food security, zero poverty, better education. Furthermore, through a proprietary algorithm, we can provide the customer with the result produced by his investments in the chosen areas. We are convinced that digital represents a further strength for the spread of sustainable investment assets, whose value in terms of diversification and decorrelation from the markets is now widely demonstrated ".
