Investing in an age of extreme weather events
Climate change is having a disruptive impact on our world – and therefore also on business models. For asset managers like ourselves, this means that climate factors must be firmly embedded into all investment processes. Our report on investing in an age of extreme weather events illustrates how we are integrating aspects of sustainability into our investment processes.
Our sustainable assets under management stood at €45.5 billion as at March 31, 2019. This means that our volume of sustainable investments has increased more than fivefold since 2014. Of this total, €41.9 billion is attributable to our institutional clients. We are delighted by this encouraging long-term trend.
