LGT Capital Partners has for a long time adopted a sustainable investment approach.
We integrate principles of sustainability into a variety of asset classes and investment structures. Consideration of ESG (environmental, social and governance) factors may apply in the area of alternative investments in the same manner as for equities and bonds, fund of funds solutions or direct investment solutions and mandates.
In terms of investment products, our global investment universe excludes companies involved in the production, storage and supply of controversial weapons such as nuclear weapons, land mines, cluster bombs/munitions and biological and chemical weapons.
