Sustainability in asset management
These two examples show what the sustainability concept of Erste Bank and Sparkassen actually means:
ERSTE BANK RESPONSIBLE STOCK DIVIDEND is a global sustainability equity fund with a focus on high dividends. The fund includes, among others shares in the MTR Corporation, one of the largest Chinese providers of goods transport by rail, and the Swiss reinsurer Swiss RE, which aligns its entire investment portfolio according to the ESG criteria of the UN (stands for Environment, Social and Governance).
The ESPA D-A-CH FONDS is a mixed fund that invests in bonds and stocks in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The portfolio currently consists of 70 percent bonds (with a focus on German corporate bonds) and 28 percent shares, including the Swiss building materials manufacturer Sika, which specifically focuses its research on resource-saving construction methods and energy-saving building materials, combined with precise reporting.
Please note that an investment in securities entails risks in addition to the opportunities described. The performance of the past does not allow reliable conclusions to be drawn about future developments.
