What are sustainable investment funds?
“Green” or sustainable investment follows environmental, social and good governance criteria. It is also known by its initials, ESG (Environmental, Social and Good Governance).
In addition to being socially and environmentally responsible, this type of investment is intended to be more stable and efficient in the medium and long term. By investing in quality companies, these funds help to sustain returns and even reduce volatility.
Why invest in sustainable investment funds?
The decisions we make when it comes to investing also have an impact on the world, and funds that follow environmental, social and good governance criteria enable you to contribute to our planet’s well-being by investing in a cost-effective and sustainable way.
In a nutshell, investing in sustainable funds is a high-quality investment. More and more studies and historical data show that these investments are performing well and yield equal or even greater returns than traditional funds.
