Swiss Life systematically integrates ecological and social factors and aspects of good corporate governance into the investment process. The responsible investment approach covers around 90% of assets under management.
Our approach to responsible investing
Our investment strategy has been oriented to long-term sustainability for over 160 years and is harmonised with insurance liabilities. Our investment policy seeks long-term and stable earnings for our clients and insured persons. Responsible investing at Swiss Life means that environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria are included in a controlled and structured investment process, along with risk factors and key financial figures. Swiss Life represents its clients’ interests as an asset manager. Swiss Life is aware of its responsibility and acts accordingly in its investment allocation, its practical investment decisions and the exercise of its voting rights.
