FINANCING THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT OF SOCIETIES, TOGETHER


 

INVESTMENT PURPOSE

Being the asset management company of the SCOR Group, SCOR Investment Partners framed its sustainable investment policy from SCOR’s Raison d’être: “As a global independent reinsurance company, SCOR contributes to the welfare, resilience, and sustainable development of society by bridging the protection gap, increasing insurance reach, helping to protect insureds against the risk they face, pushing back the frontier on insurability and acting as a responsible investor”.

As a responsible asset manager, SCOR Investment Partners’ goal is to create (long term) sustainable value to address the needs of its stakeholders, whether these are environmental or social.

As stated by the United Nations Word Commission on Environment and Development in 1987, “sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”. Combining the three dimensions of responsible investment - risk, return and impact - is critical to address this global challenge and SCOR Investment Partners intends to play its role when taking investment decisions. SCOR Investment Partners strongly believes that creating sustainable value is anchored in a long-term vision. It drives its responsible investment objectives to finance the sustainable development of societies.
