Zurich, Switzerland – Credit Suisse, one of the world’s leading financial institutions, has announced the launch of a new sustainable investing program designed to help clients align their investments with their values.
The program, called “Sustainable Investing Solutions,” offers a range of investment options that take into account environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors. These factors are integrated into the investment process to provide clients with a better understanding of the impact of their investments on the world around them.
“We are proud to introduce this new program, which is a reflection of our commitment to sustainable investing,” said Thomas Gottstein, CEO of Credit Suisse. “We believe that by integrating ESG factors into our investment process, we can create value for our clients while also contributing to a more sustainable future.”
The program offers a variety of investment strategies, including passive and active management, as well as customized solutions for clients with specific ESG requirements. The investment options cover a range of asset classes, including equities, fixed income, and alternatives.
The launch of this program comes as the demand for sustainable investing continues to grow. According to a recent survey by the Global Sustainable Investment Alliance, the global sustainable investment market grew by 15% in 2020, reaching a total of $35.3 trillion in assets under management.
“We recognize that sustainable investing is no longer a niche market,” said Marisa Drew, CEO of Credit Suisse’s Impact Advisory and Finance Department. “Investors are increasingly looking to align their investments with their values, and we are here to help them achieve that goal.”
Credit Suisse’s Sustainable Investing Solutions program is now available to clients worldwide. The program is part of Credit Suisse’s broader commitment to sustainability, which includes reducing its own carbon footprint and supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
