Weinberg Capital Partners is committed to promoting the CSR dimension at the heart of its various businesses and to involving its employees in its approach
A holistic approach to responsible investing
We are convinced that a responsible investor approach must not only be in line with our fiduciary duty to preserve and increase the value of investors' portfolios, but must also take into account sustainability criteria in a systematic way and measure the impacts of our investments on society and the environment.
For more than 15 years, we have developed our role of investor with an increased level of requirement. Today, we are in an active engagement process based on dialogue and operational support for the companies we finance.
The launch of our impact investment fund is the result of these discussions with entrepreneurs, which led us to have a conviction: the more sustainable is a business, the better it performs.
Our approach to responsible investing is holistic. For us, environmental responsibility is not at the expense of social issues, financial performance is not opposed to extra-financial performance, regulations are a source of opportunity and improvement.
