Investing with a new set of eyes
Modern sustainable investing is all about that providing our clients with important new tools to help build stronger portfolios and generate better, more sustainable, investment strategies and products.
Why is this so?
Sustainable investing is about broadening the use of material, non-financial data in the investment analysis process to include ESG – or environmental, social and governance – metrics. By adding these metrics to the investment process, investors can get a broader view of the potential upside and downside of their investments.
Seeing more clearly
Sustainable investing provides a new kind of transparency into our investments – achieved through a set of metrics that give investors material, often quantitative, data into how well a business is run, where its real risks lie, and how sustainable its business model and practices really are. When fully embedded in the investment decision-making process.
At UBS, we believe that sustainable investing adds value to portfolios within the same risk-return profile. That is why UBS Asset Management integrates ESG information in the mainstream of our offering across all asset classes.
