Unser ESGenius-Letter

Sustainability is a term that has a long tradition at Erste Asset Management. We recognized early on that investors are increasingly taking responsibility for environmental, social and corporate governance aspects into account in their investment decisions. We have taken this awareness of sustainability as an opportunity to develop a broad range of ethical and sustainable funds for private and institutional clients since 2001.

For Erste Asset Management's sustainability magazine, the ESGenius Letter, we examine the sustainability of industries and economic sectors. In our dossiers, our ESG analyst team takes a critical look at areas such as child labor, banned weapons, but also critical social issues such as meat consumption.
