Sustainable Finance

Our commitment

Why sustainable finance?

Since inception in 2001, at FARAD Group we have developed a unique approach to business and we have been always driven by a set of solid values defining our identity. From the very start until today, our team has embraced these values under a shared strong belief that finance must take an active part in contributing to the wellbeing of our society. We are convinced that a thoughtful sustainable approach to business is not only a way to act professionally and responsibly, but also an essential competitive advantage in a changing world where ensuring the positive impact of the investment decisions will guarantee the companies’ success on a long-term basis.

This common feeling becomes reality through a proactive integration of the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria in all the organisation’s departments and business choices aiming to foster sustainable impact finance initiatives by providing innovative advisory, and management support services.

Financial skillfulness in serving a new economy
We believe that, now more than ever, the financial industry cannot possibly only look at short-term benefits and the maximization of profit, without paying attention to the paths that lead to the result. Therefore, we put our deep financial expertise in the areas of assets and funds management and of wealth planning and insurance brokerage at the service of a new economy, enabling social and environmental initiatives to generate sustainable impact

Our ability in keeping with the highest standards of ESG criteria is attested by certifications and international recognitions our innovative solutions continuously achieve in both areas of asset and funds management.

We establish active communication channels towards both our clients and the global market, making sure that their content is always clear and easy to understand. Our clients systematically receive financial statements and performance reports. Data and information are constantly updated and published on our web platforms.
