SRI Expertise since 1996

In addition to standard strategies, at Candriam, we offer a specialist SRI product range based on the joint work of our team of dedicated SRI analysts and each of our investment teams. Our SRI funds cover equities, fixed income and asset allocation strategies and the European, North American, Asia-Pacific and emerging market regions.

Our approach towards SRI involves selecting firms with leading Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices in their field, direct dialogue with companies to encourage them to improve their behavior, and a proxy voting process that we have been refining since 2003.

Overall, 32% of our total assets under management are invested in SRI strategies (as of June 2019).
