Posted on 12/07/2020
European asset managers are distinguishing themselves greatly in the realm of ESG investing. La Financière de l’Echiquier (LFDE) has launched its second impact fund called Echiquier Climate Impact Europe. The fund aims to contribute to the climate transition in Europe by investing in responsible and engaged companies. The impact fund will invest in European equities based on LFDE’s proprietary ESG methodology. LFDE was formed in 1991 and has over €10 billion in assets under management. LFDE is a subsidiary of the Primonial group.
Olivier de Berranger, Deputy CEO and CIO at La Financière de l’Echiquier, in a press release said, “We are confident that impact investment can contribute effectively to meeting the climate challenge by steering capital towards companies that have undertaken their climate transition. The climate challenge is a risk, but it can also be an attractive area for investment and a source of performance for companies, investors and the European economy.”
