Aim of investment Investment principally in equities or equity-related values of companies meeting the social, ecological and ethical criteria. Ethibel is responsible for the evaluation of the companies following these criteria. The relevant equities are mainly traded in the USA and Canada.
Investment strategy Combination of bottom-up and top-down approach and approach neutral management of the portfolio. County, sector and approach differences in comparison to the "conventional" benchmark are avoided.
Investment process The selection of the companies bases on an analysis of their social and ecological policies. Openness, transparency and keeping legal rules are basic conditions. The total internal organisation and the structure of the supply chain are checked under ecological criteria.
Contribution to public welfare and the internal working conditions are important social criteria as well as the employment of women and minorities. Common acceptance of the business field and the products of the companies is also considered. If a company cooperates with third world countries, its contribution to the countries social, ecological and sustainable development is checked.
