Published: Swiss Sustainable Finance, CFA Institute Research Foundation and CFA Society Switzerland
Institutional investors in Switzerland are showing a growing interest in sustainable investments. This goes hand in hand with a growing need for information, both among pension funds and foundations, as well as among experts from insurance companies and other institutional investors. Swiss Sustainable Finance has therefore prepared a handbook on sustainable investments for Swiss institutional asset owners.
With the target audience being pension funds, foundations, insurance companies, family offices and other institutional asset owners, the publication contains a comprehensive overview of the various available sustainable investment strategies. In addition, it contains concrete tips helpful in implementing a sustainable investment policy. It will serve to deepen the discussions with asset owners about different forms of sustainable investment strategies as well as their risks and opportunities.
The handbook contains relevant information for institutional asset owners and consists of 21 chapters, 8 case studies, a glossary, and over 30 visuals.
