Asteria Investment Managers: Best ESG Impact Investment Strategy Europe 2021

Asteria Investment Managers

Geneva-based Asteria Investment Managers takes its name from a variety of starfish known for its ability to regenerate its limbs. The metaphor neatly describes the company’s aspirations towards the regenerative economy. People and planet is the phrase used by Asteria to sum up the company’s approach to ethical investing. Asteria is one of a new generation of independent asset management companies dedicated to impact investing, accelerating the transition to a sustainable socio-economic system, putting the human being and the planet’s ecosystems at its heart. Impact investing combines the generation of financial returns with support for companies demonstrating a measurable social or environmental benefit – and is the principal objective at Asteria. The company was founded in 2019 but its investment professionals have more than 20 years’ experience. Asteria has at its core a commitment to environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals, used by investors to evaluate corporate behaviour. It uses ESGs to guide its strategy, using capital as an agent of change, encouraging a move towards sustainable and fair economies. It places long-term positive performance at the same level of importance as impact generation. The company, which manages both private and listed asset classes, devotes time and resource to large-scale, sophisticated research to guide its pursuit of investment solutions which lead to positive environmental impact. The company embraces its responsibility, not only in guiding investment strategies, but also ensuring it generates a small environmental footprint, while guaranteeing a job and lifestyle balance for its employees. The judging panel is pleased to present Asteria Investment Managers with the 2021 award for Best ESG Impact Investment Strategy Europe.
