Erste Asset Management has a strong tradition of sustainable investing. We granted priority to ethical issues early on and to ensure that sustainability remained strongly anchored within EAM we recently appointed a Chief Sustainability Officer (CSO).
Pioneer and Market Leader
As Erste Asset Management’s largest and oldest subsidiary company, ERSTE-SPARINVEST takes a pioneering role in the field of ethics and sustainability: Since 2001, the company has focused on “responsible” products – which are being offered under the name of “VINIS”. Today, ERSTE-SPARINVEST has invested in the widest range of ethical and sustainable investment funds in Austria, with a volume of approx. 4,52 billion Euros (30.06.2017).
The ethically sustainable funds of Erste Asset Management are continuously monitored and tested externally. They carry, among others, the Austrian Ecolabel, the European Transparency Logo for sustainable Mutual Funds (EUROSIF) and were given the prestigious TRIGOS Award, an Austrian award for Corporate Social Responsibility.
Seal of Approval
Erste Asset Management’s ethically sustainable fund is continuously observed and tested by various organisations and institutions.
