Are you letting your wealth work for you? Do you know for what, for whom, and how your money is working?

People who responsibly engage in sustainable investing ask themselves three fundamental questions:


The definition of ESG illustrated: The “E” in ESG stands for the environmental aspects of sustainability


How is a company dealing with the environment?

The definition of ESG illustrated: The “S” in ESG stands for the social aspects of sustainability


How is a company dealing with society?

The definition of ESG illustrated: The “G” in ESG stands for governance


How is a company acting responsibly?



Investors have always been concerned about the “right” way to invest their money. This is exactly what ESG aims to do as well. ESG investments therefore look at the risks that a company takes with regard to the environment, social issues and corporate governance. Although the term ESG has only recently started making headlines, its roots go back to the Victorian era. It was then that some industrialists realized that their companies would be more successful if their workers were properly housed and had access to education and healthcare. Since then, ESG has evolved into a diverse range of products and services.
