Our ESG approach
We firmly believe that there is no ‘one size fits all’ for clients investing in sustainability, and that’s why we look at it across all facets – be that exclusion, screening, developing sustainability, impact / transition focused strategies and, or ESG integration.

Exclusion and ESG integration
Avoidance of investments which are deemed undesirable either by UBS or our clients. Integration of ESG factors in the investment process alongside traditional financial metrics, in conjunction with ESG relevant risk analysis that helps us look to the future to identify long-term risks and opportunities and invest accordingly.
Sustainability focused strategies
- Extended criteria for exclusions (which go beyond the standard exclusions)
- Positive sustainability characteristics
- Engagement is prioritized with ESG improvers
- Compliance with the EU-Taxonomy
- Risk based screening to identify those higher risk issuers which are to be avoided in the investable universe
Impact (thematic) strategies
Our Impact strategies meet the minimum criteria of the sustainability focused strategies and additionally include a verifiable impact measurement. The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) create the framework for impact investing.
