What does ‘sustainable investing’ mean?
Sustainable Investing is the general term for sustainable, responsible, ethical, social, ecological investment and all other investment processes that include the influence of ESG (environment, social and governance) criteria in their financial analysis and selection.
“Impact Investment” – is that also sustainable?
Impact Investment is a sub-category of sustainable investment.
These are investments in companies, organisations and funds with the aim of having a social and / or ecological impact in addition to the financial return. Impact investments can be made in markets in both industrialised and developing countries. Impact investments are often project-specific and differ from the approach of philanthropy (in which no financial returns are expected).
At Vividam, special thematic funds (water, climate, renewable energies, etc.) are also part of the impact investment strategy.
Since the publication of the 17 UN SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) in 2015, more and more investors have measured the impact against these 17 goals.
The fees for sustainable investments are higher than the ETF investments … why is that?
The fees of actively managed funds, which also include the Impact Funds, are usually always higher. Active sustainability research, includes critical discussions with companies, the involvement of experts and advisory boards etc., which increases costs. These costs are partly passed on to the funds.
Why do I have to provide my income and date of birth?
In accordance with the legal requirements, we are obliged to query your date of birth and your income.
