Socially Responsible Investments

Investments with positive impacts

Important Information
On the 12th of April 2022 KBC announced the decision to formally wind down the operations of the bank and exit the Irish market irrespective of the outcome of the regulatory approval process for the Bank of Ireland Transaction.

This means that Investment funds will be automatically redeemed at a future date (which we will communicate in advance, giving at least 60 days notice.) It is no longer possible to invest new funds in KBC Investment Funds.

Investments with positive impacts

Socially Responsible is more than a buzzword at KBC

KBC AM works with independent experts and an external research agency, Sustainalytics. Sustainalytics is an independent research agency that regularly screens companies on the basis of parameters related to the environment, social policy and corporate governance.
 
KBC AM works together with independent experts who continually scrutinise and refine our methodology and is transparent with the Research Results of all companies and countries which have been analysed.

Socially Responsible Investments (SRIs)
Socially Responsible Investing means investing in countries and companies that have a positive impact on our society, our environment and our world. 

  • Are they for you? If you care about tomorrow’s generation as well as today’s, YES! Your investment choices can make a difference.

  • Why does it matter? On top of the positive environmental impacts of investing in socially responsible companies, you’re sending a very clear message to those who aren’t to get on board. Your choices will help create a better society. 

Let’s make a difference together.
