From small and medium-sized stocks to European and international equities, socially responsible investment, European credits or asset allocation, we have developed conviction-based approaches for each of our areas of expertise.
Socially Responsible Investment
For sustainable creation of value
Making the most of sustainable development and a responsible economy. That is the basis of Socially Responsible Investment (SRI).
For us, it means rigorous selection of the companies in which we invest.
We combine non-financial analysis (ESG criteria) with financial analysis of companies to obtain a 360° view of the risks and opportunities of our investments. The companies analysed must obtain a minimum ESG score to be part of our SRI solutions.
This methodology has been refined over more than 12 years earning us the French official state SRI label for multiple funds and Belgian and German labels for two funds..
In the interest of perfect transparency, full information on our methodology and investments is available on our website.

To exercise our responsibility towards companies and our investors
All of our actively managed funds integrate the analysis of ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) criteria. We are actively working to progressively align the practices of the entire management team with those implemented within the framework of Socially Responsible Investment funds.
Thus, in addition to carrying out this detailed work of ESG analysis of companies with the same rigour, we strive to exclude from our portfolios all sectors involving the production of tobacco, thermal coal and controversial armaments. We are also vigilant about controversies that may affect the companies in the portfolio. Our Ethics Committee’s purpose is to discuss and rule on the most sensitive cases of controversy.
