Responsible Investments

We consistently exert our influence on society by investing responsibly.

A long-term, responsible approach to business is part of Golding’s commercial ethos. We are committed to ethical, lawful conduct and equally require this from all our employees and business partners.

Consideration of ESG aspects is part of our self-image

As portfolio manager (AIFM) and investment adviser (together an asset manager) and in accordance with the European Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) we consider environmental, social and governance factors (ESG) that may have a substantial actual or potential negative effects on the value of an investment (“sustainability risks”) in our investment decisions.

We are convinced that this not only helps us to fulfil our role in society, but also improves our risk management and increases potential for value appreciation.

We have laid out our commitment to responsible investing in our custom, group-wide set of guidelines.
