Sustainable offerings

Among the different financial services, we also promote sustainable investments and support our customers in building portfolios that take account of their personal sensibilities to ESG (environmental, social and governance) issues.

The three pillars of ESG

Environment, society and governance: these three pillars are the source of the acronym “ESG” (environmental, social and governance), which encompasses three different approaches to sustainable investments.

The first pillar — the environment — refers to themes relating to reducing pollution and rationalising waste. The second — society — relates to gender policies, human rights, labour standards and relationships between productive enterprise and the community in which it operates. The third — governance — has to do with sound governance practices for companies and virtuous behaviour by businesses in the area of legal compliance and business ethics.

In pursuit of these goals, we promote sustainable investments and stand shoulder to shoulder with our customers in building portfolios that take account of their differing sensibilities to ESG issues, according to an approach based on the Sustainable Development Goals promoted by the United Nations.

Sustainable investment strategies

In line with the innovation process undertaken through the partnership with MainStreet Partners, we have been developing a proprietary platform for over a year that is capable of providing an in-depth assessment of the level of sustainability of individual products also in terms of environmental exposure social and governance, and to calculate the impact of the investment on the individual Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) promoted by the United Nations, according to a quantitative approach that measures contributions to ESG issues and thus adds a new dimension of value to investment.

On this basis, we have included a sustainable, broad and diversified component within its offer, both in terms of asset class and specific investment themes as well as compliance with the SDGs. In addition to sustainable products, there are also model portfolios and asset management lines characterized by investment processes that integrate the search for traditional financial returns with specific environmental, social and governance (so-called ESG) criteria aligned with the SDGs.

It is precisely through this articulated offer and strongly oriented towards sustainable objectives that we support the customer in pursuing environmental, social and good governance results.

Sustainable Finance Advisory

Among the different financial services, we also promote the construction of portfolios that can take into account the different sensitivities and preferences of the customer in terms of ESG, with an approach based on the “Sustainable Development Goals” promoted by the United Nations. The methodology used makes it possible to measure the impact of the investment in terms of environmental, social and governance exposure, realizing the ambitions of our customers through metrics and statistics that show the results obtained in terms of sustainability.
