Nachhaltigkeit. Wir meinen es ernst.

Sustainable Global Equity Report, Q4 2021

2 December 2021 |
It is increasingly understood that absolute levels of poverty are far from the only issue affecting the world's poor. Almost a third of adults globally (about 1.7 billion people) remain unbanked.¹

In the inaugural Sustainable Global Equity Quarterly Report, we delve into Financial Inclusion, as a theme linked to 13 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We argue that improving people’s access to the products and services they need to manage their money reduces income inequality, fosters gender equality and political stability, improves access to natural resources like water and energy, and creates economic opportunity.

Other highlights in this edition include:

  • Our exposure by investable impact theme: We share how our portfolio breaks down across four impact themes, as aligned to the SDGs. We also disclose our portfolio’s environmental footprint, relative to the MSCI All Country World Index.
  • Case studies: We provide case studies for two portfolio companies.
