Triodos Investment Management offers sustainable investment opportunities in a number of countries for customers who want to invest with impact and as sustainably as possible, with different levels of risk.
Triodos Bank has always separated this part of its work from its savings and loans businesses. It advocates a similar separation in the wider banking sector, to avoid the now familiar damage of mixing the two. As well as the successful capital raising work described above funds in the Netherlands grew to EUR 700 million during 2012.
The UK’s Corporate Finance team completed six capital raising transactions raising over EUR15m for clients in the social, organic and renewable sectors. The team also established a leadership role in the UK’s emerging social investment market raising two Social Impact Bonds to reduce homelessness and unemployment.
Private Banking also expanded substantially during the year in the Dutch and Belgian branches, where this service is currently offered. In Belgium growth was 48%.
