PRINCIPLES FOR RESPONSIBLE INVESTMENT

Principles for responsible investments.

FAME Investments AG is not only dedicated to serving its clients, but also strives for a better environment and society. As a signatory of the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment Initiative (PRI), FAME was proud to contribute to the development of a more sustainable global financial system.

In the recent past, FAME has resigned itself from PRI signatory. However, we still do take environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into consideration throughout the investment process. There is a growing recognition in the financial community that effective research, analysis and evaluation of ESG issues is a fundamental part of assessing the sustainability of an investment. This analysis needs to be taken into account during asset allocation, fund selection, and portfolio construction.
