Switzerland is at the nexus of responsible investment and the natural resource industry: 3 of the 10 largest wealth managers, 10% of global securitised assets, and 25% of the world's commodity trading firms are based here. The world's first sustainability index and FairTrade fund were both launched in Switzerland. Over 220 actors in sustainable finance can be counted. Sustainability is even enshrined in the Swiss constitution. Lastly, the watchful presence of the UN, NGOs and Swiss foundations creates a base for global policy research and action. In 2015, therefore, we will convene a series of private investor events in Swiss and other European locations. To participate, please get in touch.
