Triodos Bank’s Executive Board provides a perspective on the wider world it operates in, its impact and activity in 2016 and its prospects for the future.
Triodos Investment Management is confident that its funds will continue to attract investors, building on over 20 years’ experience in bringing together values, vision, and financial returns on investment. With an increasing demand across Europe from investors in impact investment looking for an experienced, reliable and professional impact investment partner, it will broaden its international distribution strategy by adding new markets to its distribution network.
Triodos Investment Management aims to further build a balanced portfolio of impact investment funds delivering impact in key areas related to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, with a focus on human dignity and development and responsibility and care for the earth.
To strengthen its reputation as an innovative investment manager Triodos Investment Management will continue to look for development and growth, both through expansion within existing funds and through the creation of new values-based investment solutions.
From March 2017, Triodos Investment Management will take on the portfolio management of Sustainability | Finance | Real Economies SICAV – SIF (SFRE, pronounced Sapphire), an investment fund designed to deploy substantial capital to financial institutions that play a key role in meeting human needs and advancing essential segments of real economies in their communities. The fund’s mission to invest in sustainability-focused financial institutions is fully aligned with Triodos Investment Management’s mission to provide growth capital to a growing segment of financial institutions that are making a meaningful difference to the lives of millions of individuals and small businesses globally.
Triodos Investment Management’s strategic focus will continue to be on individual investors, distributors and professional investors that cater for impact investment solutions for individual investors.
