A word on the Fund

It is classified as Article 8 according to the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR)1 and has received two sustainability labels: the Belgium label ‘Towards Sustainability’ in February 2020 and the French Label ‘Label ISR’ in May 2021.
A word on the Award
The Swiss Sustainable Funds Awards (SSFA) were created by the Geneva and Zurich Forums for Sustainable Investment with the aim of establishing “a benchmark and ranking acknowledged and recognised by the financial community”. The jury is independent and composed of representatives of the financial industry players (independent advisors, funds selectors, family offices, third-party managers and academics). Selection is done based on quantitative and qualitative data from two distinct providers, Conser and Anglo-Swiss Advisors.
The reference to a ranking or prize is no guarantee of the future results of the UCIS or the manager.
