ABN AMRO is pleased to announce that it has lowered the threshold for its Sustainable Investment Mandate to EUR 100,000. This will open up sustainable investment in the form of a mandate to more of the bank’s retail clients. In addition, these clients will now receive more comprehensive details about the sustainability performance of the companies where their funds are invested.
Lowering the threshold
ABN AMRO’s Director of Asset Management Richard de Groot explains, ‘The Sustainable Investment Mandate is one of our most popular mandates. Lowering the threshold for entry means that more of our clients can benefit from the convenience of asset management, and opens up sustainable investment to a larger group of clients.’
Sustainability information about investments
Besides lowering this threshold, ABN AMRO will also provide more comprehensive information. That information will be based on the bank’s sustainability indicator for equities and bonds and will be available through the bank’s investment advisors. The data on which ABN AMRO’s sustainability indicator is based is derived from research by Sustainalytics and from the bank’s own analyses. The qualitative information underpins the quantitative analysis based on ESG (environmental, social and governance) criteria. The bank’s analyses also take into account exposure to violations of international conventions, as well as the company’s specific sustainability policies. The information, which is geared towards individual investment portfolios of retail and private banking clients, will be made available in the form of factsheets and via the investment Internet portal at abnamro.nl.
