Yesterday we received Mario Mantrisi, General Manager of the Luxembourg Finance Labelling Agency (LuxFLAG), for a Lunch & Learn session about responsible investment guided by environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles.

SEQVOIA has been aware of the strong and growing interest in sustainable finance among its clients, and joined LuxFLAG as an Associate Member in December 2018.

LuxFLAG’s stated objective is to promote the raising of capital for sustainable investments by awarding a recognisable label to eligible investment vehicles, thereby reassuring investors that their money is being applied, directly or indirectly, in the responsible investment sector.

Mr. Mantrisi’s presentation offered a clear explanation of what sustainable finance means — a concept sometimes confused with “impact investing” — as well as the different sustainable investing strategies available and how to adopt them.

Are you interested in sustainable investing and responsible finance? Read Mr. Mantrisi and Mrs. Didier's take on the the subject.
