ESG Portfolio Management understands the crucial role ESG investments play in the transition towards more sustainable and resilient economies. The firm was founded in 2018 in Frankfurt by managing partner Christoph Klein, a CFA charterholder with a 20-year career managing investment portfolios at institutions such as Deutsche Bank and Deutsche Asset Management.

ESG Portfolio Management’s team diligently pursues the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The firm is the managing advisor of three SDG Evolution Flexibel funds (combined volume total €10.7mio) and the Mayance Fair Value Bond Fonds (€21mio volume). The firm backs companies at the vanguard of the sustainability transition and follows strong engagement policies to ensure continued — and improving — ESG compliance.
