Sustainable investing is about broadening the use of material, non-financial data in the investment analysis process to include environmental, social and governance metrics. Incorporating these metrics helps investors take a broader view of the potential upside and downside of their investments and so make better informed investment decisions.
In its current form, sustainable investing represents one of the most significant investment advances of the 21st century. Not only can it contribute to a better world, but the new tools and transparency of sustainable investing also offer investors the opportunity to build stronger portfolios and generate better, and more sustainable, returns. That is why UBS is bringing sustainable investing into the mainstream of our offering to all clients.
