Neuflize OBC extends sustainable investments offering

News item -

Ten years ago, Neuflize OBC, ABN AMRO’s private bank in France, launched its first sustainable mandates, as one of the first banks in France. Since then, initiatives to promote this approach from banks and investment management firms have multiplied. To further promote sustainable investing, Neuflize OBC has extended its responsible product offering to its clients.

Sustainable investments default option

From now on, sustainable investments will be the default option for clients of Neuflize OBC. This high-conviction approach helps meet growing client requests for their investments to serve purpose. In addition, Neuflize OBC broadens its sustainable mandate offer. Sustainable investing will now be accessible to all client risk profiles from the most prudent to the most dynamic. Last but not least, Neuflize OBC will launch a new impact investment mandate for clients wishing to make a further step into sustainability and responsibility. It will invest in companies which intend to have a positive environmental and social impact. Reinforced extra-financial reporting will help gauge and monitor investment impacts in real time. The approach will focus on companies that have best integrated the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals in their business and are helping to achieve them.

Banking for better, for generations to come

Prioritising responsible investing is in line with ABN AMRO’s purpose: “Banking for better, for generations to come”. Since 2010, sustainable investments have performed on a par with traditional investment strategies. Assets in sustainable mandates increased by more than 30% in 2019 and the trend is accelerating in 2020 as two-thirds of new mandates are SRI compliant. In France, impact investing has been offered to Neuflize OBC’s professional clients through two external impact funds since mid-2019.
