Candriam has been running responsible investment portfolios since 1996. The core of our conviction has always been that investment opportunities and risks cannot be fully evaluated using traditional financial measures alone: to ensure a complete view of each company’s prospects, we need to consider its ESG practices. Over the years we’ve increased our range of SRI capabilities such that today, we provide our investors with the broadest range of SRI portfolios and services in Europe. Using a unique approach to Best-in-Class ESG screening, Candriam covers all the main asset classes and geographic areas, as well as providing dedicated SRI advisory services.
As a responsible asset manager, Candriam became one of the first signatories of the UN Principles of Responsible Investment (PRI) in 2006. The initiative is a partnership between the United Nations and global investors with the goal of promoting and mainstreaming responsible investment practice.
Candriam Investors Group is a New York Life Company. New York Life Investments ranks among the world's largest asset managers.
