Sustainable Investment Mandate

Investing in sustainable companies

Sustainable Investment Mandate

Sustainable Investment Mandate

  • Investing in a sustainable future
  • Based on ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) criteria
  • Financial and social returns

A portfolio of socially responsible individual shares and bonds, supplemented by specific, sustainable investment funds.

Mandate characteristics:

The mandate's goal is to invest in companies that seek to earn both financial and social returns. These enterprises have managed to strike the right balance between people, the environment and society. To be included in the sustainable investment portfolio, companies must meet strict sustainability criteria. Part of your portfolio consists of progressive companies that are constantly seeking innovation and new developments. Within our alternative investments, we also invest in innovative companies that make a sustainable impact through micro- and fair trade financing or renewable energy projects, among other things. Under this mandate, you will be able to reduce risks associated with the environment, social factors and poor governance through our investments.

Your Portfolio Manager

Your assets are managed by a team of Portfolio Managers. They constantly monitor macroeconomic developments and market conditions and adjust portfolios as necessary. If you have a question about the markets or would like to know how your investments are doing, your Portfolio Manager will be happy to make time for you. That way, you don't have to deal with your investments on a daily basis, but are always well-informed and in control.

More information and conditions

What the mandate comprises

  • Equity
    The equity portfolio of the Sustainable Investment Mandate consists of 30 to 40 companies from developed markets. These companies meet our criteria for sustainable businesses, and alongside them we hold investment funds in order to benefit from the potential of emerging markets and more besides.
  • Bonds 
    A bond represents a good balance between risk and return. We firmly believe that spreading the risk is important, and that's why our Portfolio Managers give preference to bonds with a high credit rating and a variety of maturities. Bonds outside the eurozone can also be included in the portfolio, helping to hedge the currency risk. The selected bonds are made up of sustainable corporate bonds and sustainable government and supranational issues in both developed and emerging countries.
  • Alternative investments 
    Here, the Portfolio Managers are permitted to invest in investment funds that have a positive environmental and social impact. These include microfinancing of schools and communities, renewable energy and more.
  • Cash
    The Portfolio Managers may also opt to hold part of the portfolio in cash.
What is the investment approach?

The portfolios are actively managed according to the market conditions and in line with your risk profile. 
 
Our Portfolio Managers ensure the optimal allocation of your portfolio. They construct the portfolios based on the investment strategy defined by the Global Investment Committee. This strategy defines the preference for asset classes, regions, sectors and themes.
Risks

You should only invest with money that you have over, in addition to your buffer for unforeseen expenses. Investing can be interesting, but it also involves risks. You can lose (part of) your investment. It is good to be aware of this. Only invest in investment products that you understand. 

With Discretionary Portfolio Management, you do not make any investment choices yourself. Nevertheless, it is important that you are aware of the risks of investing. 

If you start with Discretionary Portfolio Management, it is important to first determine your risk profile. You leave the buying and selling to our experts, who will act within your risk profile.

Risk profiles

ABN AMRO uses six risk profiles for Discretionary Portfolio Management: from low risk (very defensive) to very high risk (very aggressive). Each risk profile has its own recommended allocation for the assets invested across shares, bonds, alternative investments and cash. 

Once you and your Private Banker have determined your risk profile, we can put together an appropriate investment portfolio. You will see immediately what this can mean for the return on your investments.
