|UBS Sustainable & Responsible Funds|
- Investment in line with sustainable values
- Proven expertise in the field of sustainable and responsible investments
- Choice of companies and regions to invest in
The market for sustainable and responsible investments has grown rapidly over the last ten years -
and the trend is upwards. Since the mid-90s, UBS has offered products that satisfy sustainable and
responsible standards. At UBS, we have developed our own methods for identifying and monitoring
such investments and we also involve external experts for validation. We are firmly committed to
responsible practices in the conduct of our own business and in the investment products we offer -
which is one of the reasons we have launched our UBS Sustainable & Responsible Funds.
As consumers, whether on the high street or at their bank, we value choice. UBS Sustainable &
Responsible Funds enable investors to exercise this choice when putting together their investment
portfolios, offering them the chance to invest in companies in line with their sustainable values.
Our sustainable and responsible investment specialists have identified investments that generate
financial performance and meet the demands of sustainable responsibility.
Through our rigorous selection process we have identified "Leaders" and "Innovators". Leaders are
companies that are best in industry class in terms of sustainability and responsibility - overall
sustainability policy and management, specific industry sustainability challenges, employee and
stakeholder relations and corporate governance. Innovators are smaller or emerging companies whose
products or services make a contribution to sustainable development and which also have promising
growth potential. Sustainable and responsible investments also make sense economically - companies
with a pro-active approach to sustainability benefit from reduced risk and increased competitive
advantage and generate long-term added value for stakeholders.
UBS is itself listed on Dow Jones Sustainability Index and FTSE4Good Index. Our proven track record
of ethical and sustainable responsibility makes us a credible partner for sustainable and responsible
investments. And our tradition of excellence in managing money means that clients' money is in good
