Aim of investment The aim of the fund is to let investors participate in the growth of companies focused on ethical and sustainable business practices and fields. The selection criteria for the companies include both financial returns and the impact of the companies' business activities on society.
Investment strategy The fund invests exclusively in market segments with good prospects, which reflect the ethics of the Steyler Missionaries.
The Steyler Bank offers, through the Steyler Fair and Sustainable, a fair and transparent alternative to other funds. The objective is, "to dispel investment's abstractness", says Norbert Wolf, member of the board of directors at Steyler Bank. 'Additionally, we will consequently use the worldwide network of the Steyler Missionaries by establishing so-called finance-scouts in countries where Steyler Missionaries are active, which in turn rate companies through their local experience. A fund with such a network has never been established in the financial history of our country.
Investment process The financial institution selects stocks through the expertise of oekom research AG. An independent ethical advisory board comprising representatives of Steyler Missionaries, social ethicists and finance experts ensures compliance of the fund's guidelines, observes the ongoing results of the rating agencies and recommends further actions. Additionally, the advisory board draws on information from finance-scouts. Therefore, if a company acts unethically, the possibility for taking necessary action exists through a so-called engagement process which allows the company's management boards to reconsider. Thus, the Steyler Fair and Sustainable - Stocks also becomes an instrument through which Steyler Missionaries fight exploitation, poverty and injustice.
The investment horizon seeks a balanced ratio between global blue-chip companies, and medium and small enterprises (mid- and small-caps).
The use of profits by the Steyler Fair and Sustainable - Stocks is unique. All surplus from fund administration fees received by the bank is used for Steyler Missionaries aid projects. The "social report" enables investees to capture detailed information about all supported projects with this surplus and the benefits it creates.
Positive criteria The fund invests in companies that support preservation of peace and fairness, and that protect the Creation in a sustainable way.
