Swiss Life Asset Managers’ longstanding tradition of sustainable investment is deeply rooted in its corporate DNA. Over the past few years, we have given these values more substance and adopted a comprehensive approach to responsible investment.
Our approach to responsible investment
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. At Swiss Life Asset Managers, responsible investing means that environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors are included in a controlled and structured investment process, along with risk factors and key financial figures.
Information sheet on sustainable investing at Swiss Life Asset Managers
Our information sheet tells you how we invest sustainably and what principles we follow in doing so.
In its investment strategy, Swiss Life Asset Managers systematically takes environmental, social and good governance issues into account in 90% of all assets it manages. In addition to traditional key financial figures, the integration of non-financial ESG factors into the investment process enables risks and opportunities to be identified at an early stage as well as long-term threats and opportunities to the investment portfolio. The consistent integration of ESG factors by Swiss Life Asset Managers is recognised, among other things, with an A+ rating in the Strategy and Governance module of PRI (Principles for Responsible Investment).

Our ESG concept in view of climate change
We foster a holistic view of corporate responsibility. We incorporate the perspectives of stakeholders into our ESG concept, such as our customers, the society in which we live and act and our responsibility for the assets we manage. That is why we focus on our fiduciary duty, intergenerational responsibility and active assumption of responsibility as the defining pillars of our ESG approach.
