Why not reaching for the stars? With the “Echiquier Space”, investors can participate in the innovations of private space technology without cutting back on the ESG criteria. We are really happy with our innovative, strong fund partners! LFDE - La Financière de l'Echiquier - launches Echiquier Space (1), the first thematic fund in Europe focused on space and its ecosystem. As the space 2.0 economy and the New Space offer unprecedented opportunities with the shift of the market to the private sector. This is the very first fund in Europe that will invest in companies with activities in Space and in developing the space ecosystem.
LFDE, La Financière de l’Echiquier, has launched its second impact fund, Echiquier Climate Impact Europe, which is meant to contribute to the climate transition in Europe by investing in responsible and engaged companies. The fund is entirely dedicated to the climate transition. Managed by Adrien Bommelaer, Luc Olivier and Paul Merle, Echiquier Climate Impact Europe invests in European equities based on LFDE’s proprietary ESG methodology, which is considered demanding by specialists in the field, but also according to a new exclusive proprietary methodology making it possible to establish companies’ “Climate Maturity” score.
How the COVID-19 crisis has so far affected the ESG investing movement, why "Impact" is increasingly coming into focus and whether the investment fund industry could experience its own "Dieselgate" in the next few years was discussed by e-fundresearch.com in an exclusive interview with the Austrian sustainability pioneer Dr. Susanne Lederer-Pabst.
The topic of sustainability is important! Now it is getting clear..
With La Financière de l'Echiquier (LFDE) we represent a manager who has been committed to this topic for many years.
An analysis published by the business magazine "trend" shows how strongly the sustainability approach is anchored in its management: The "Echiquier Positive Impact Europe Fund" ranks first on the list of "Deep Green" funds. On the list are products, that improve the environment actively.
I am very happy to have been interviewed by "Fondsfrau" Anke Dembowski (who is also an editor at "Institutional Money") who let me share about myself and my motivation for my work in the world.
She asked me some questions, like why sustainable investments are important to me, and why I see special opportunities for women in this area. Thank you very much for that!
I was very happy to talk about female values, entrepreneurship, women empowerment but also about financial markets and pensions on the occasion of International Women's Day.
With the words: "Readers of our magazine know your column on the subject of Impact Investing, you are one of the pioneers in this field in this country", we were asked for an interview by Christine Petzwinkler, editor at Börse Social magazine.
We are happy to reveal what we are passionate about and why we are particularly committed to the financial sector.
