Stableton Commits to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI)
Zug and Zurich, June 27, 2023: Stableton, an award-winning fintech platform specializing in the thriving area of privately held growth equity investments, announces its commitment to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). By signing the Principles, Stableton pledges to incorporate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors into its investment practices. This commitment reflects the investment firm's mission to achieve long-term financial success for investors while making a positive impact on society and the environment.
The international United Nations-supported PRI network is the world's leading proponent of responsible investment. Signatories commit to integrating environmental, social, and governance ("ESG") factors into their investment practices. By committing to six PRI principles, investors contribute to developing a more sustainable global financial system.
Stableton Financial AG ("Stableton") firmly believes that sustainable investing is not only a moral obligation but a decisive factor for long-term financial success. The award-winning fintech platform is pleased to announce its commitment to the six principles of responsible investing by implementing them into its investment analysis and decision-making processes, aligning its strategies with sustainability goals. As an active owner, Stableton will work diligently to promote responsible investment practices within the industry by seeking appropriate disclosure on ESG issues from the entities in which it invests. The investment firm is determined to enhance its effectiveness in implementing these principles collectively. Transparent reporting on activities and progress in implementing the principles will be a priority for Stableton.
"As the world faces pressing environmental and social challenges, we recognize the urgent need to invest in a sustainable future," said Stableton's CEO Andreas Bezner. "At Stableton, we are proud to join the global movement towards responsible investing. We are committed to integrating sustainability into every aspect of our business and to providing investors with the tools they need to engage in a more responsible and sustainable way. We believe that by investing in sustainable businesses, we can help create a more equitable and prosperous world for all."
"Many major investors have included ESG factors into their decision-making process. Responsible investing is becoming the new standard across the investment industry. This approach is also an important quality factor for Stableton. We are well-positioned to play a leading role in this area and lead the way in our space", adds Christian R. Schmid, Head of Investments at Stableton.
