“We are convinced that by analysing all potential risk aspects, financial as well as extra-financial, we will be able to make better-informed investment decisions that will generate sustainable returns. In this respect, we consider environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues in our investment analysis as an additional and useful means to mitigate risks in our investment portfolios. It will offer us another perspective and allow us to gain further insight into targeted companies.“ 

Guy Wagner, Managing Director

Our disciplined philosophy

BLI - Banque de Luxembourg Investments S.A. applies a disciplined investment philosophy as investments are considered as stakes in businesses with a long-term investment horizon. BLI’s fund managers are constantly on the lookout for quality companies with a tangible competitive advantage that generate high levels of profitability and free cash flow. Such companies have the potential to create long-term value for their shareholders.

ESG research now available

This fundamental investment methodology aims to produce portfolios offering below average volatility and, over a complete business cycle, above average performance. In order to further enhance the risk-return profile of our products, the integration of non-financial criteria into our investment process is a logical step, especially given the wide range of external ESG research now available.

BLI’s milestones in responsible investment:

  • BLI became signatory of Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) in July 2017,
  • initiation of an internal ESG committee,
  • implementation of a corporate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) policy.
