DoubleDividend is an engaged investor. In our investment policy, we aim to keep the balance between financial and social returns. We believe that a comprehensive analysis of financial, and ESG characteristics of a company provides a positive contribution to the risk/return profile of an investment portfolio.
DoubleDividend invests in companies that make a substantial positive contribution in order to make our society more sustainable. The impact of a business may be the result of the scope of the business, the product, or the services provided by the company.
We assess companies in accordance with our own ESG* model and we expect such companies to offer solutions for the most important sustainability issues: climate change, eco system protection, access to health care and poverty reduction. We select companies on good corporate governance which is evident from the composition of the Board, the shareholders’ rights, and the remuneration policy. We will only consider and include those companies in our portfolio that show positive developments on the basis of our ESG model.
*) ESG = Environmental, Social, Governance
