We improve portfolio quality
For EBG, sustainable alternative investments are a holistic investment style with high-quality standards, not a trend. From the very beginning of our business activities in 2008, we have been convinced that profitable growth and future success are largely based on forward-looking strategy and responsible management. For this reason, the far-reaching integration of key sustainability/ESG factors has long been a matter of course for us.
At the same time, we believe that developing and implementing optimal investment solutions must be highly client-specific to meet their unique needs and preferences. This is why we work exclusively on the buy side as a partner to our clients and develop customized investment solutions that can be smoothly integrated into an existing portfolio or complement it in a targeted manner. Similarly, we also individually adapt our processes, interfaces and formats to the needs of each of our clients. Our approach has nothing to do with sacrificing returns; to the contrary, we believe it enhances returns. It is also deeply authentic, which differentiates us.
A solution tailored to each client’s needs enables them to avoid building up additional capital-intensive and often rigid capacity. We also facilitate more rapid and effective implementation by leveraging our many years of global sustainable investment and in-depth ESG integration experience. The market has shifted from being a sellers’ market more recently, driven by increasing demand, where we provided access to exclusive private market investments despite material competition, to a buyers’ market characterized by disruption. In all parts of the cycle, our insight, coupled with efficient processes, are crucial to opening up and evaluating attractive opportunities.
We conduct all the activities connected to the investment process, including in-depth due diligence, ongoing monitoring and quarterly reporting, as well as periodic administrative and regulatory tasks that may arise. Flexible asset pooling of several clients allows us to achieve synergies and reduce costs. Our distinctive client-centric philosophy and approach to comprehensively integrate sustainability as a value driver differentiate us from large financial institutions and investment generalists.
