Investment objective

Investment objective

The investment objective is to achieve a financial return that is at least equal to the return of the benchmark and pursues long-term sustainability objectives.

How does this fund invest?

To a large extent, the fund invests passively. This means that the fund manager follows an index and does not select investments aimed at keeping the cost low. In 2019, a sustainable, actively managed equity strategy with an investment in the Global Equity Impact Pool was added to the fund. This investment institution aims, on the one hand, to contribute to the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and, on the other hand, to limit the negative impact on the planetary boundaries, i.e. the boundaries defining the earth's capacity to utilise the earth’s resources.

How responsible are the fund investments? 

Zwitserleven and its fund managers have chosen to implement a socially responsible investment policy. We only invest in companies which pass a sustainability test based on so-called environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria.

The data below refers to August, 2021.



The ESG score measures the sustainability of a fund ESG stands for environment, social and governance. We consider several factors including energy consumption, safety and good corporate governance. This is compared with the benchmark (if available).

It applies to the companies and countries we invest in. A good balance between the ESG factors and the financial results can lead to better operating results. The higher the ESG score, the lower the risks.

CO₂-uitstoot in tonnen


The lower the CO2 emissions, the lower the climate-related risk. Climate change is a financial risk. That is why we measure the CO2 emissions of our funds compared with the benchmark (if available). It consists of the direct CO2 emissions of investments, caused by internal sources such as building, transport and production related activities. And of the indirect CO2 emissions of investments, caused by the generation of consumed electricity or heat.

Waterverbruik in liters (x1000)

Water consumption

Water scarcity is a financial risk. That is why we measure the water use of our funds (in litres x 1000). We measure the absolute water consumption of business activities in sectors and regions where water is scarce.The lower the scarcity and water use, the lower the risk of water scarcity. This is weighted on the basis of total fund assets and compared with the benchmark (if available).

Water use cannot be calculated for government bonds and real estate because no data are available about this. Therefore, calculations for the funds investing in these categories are only partial.
