This distinction rewards a strong performing investment strategy with full ESG integration. Kempen has a strong commitment to long-term investing and sustainable value creation for all stakeholders.

The Swiss Sustainable Fund Award (SSFA) was initiated 3 years ago. It promotes greater clarity and comparability between sustainable funds, highlights the expertise of asset managers committed to sustainable finance and enhance the attractiveness of credible, high-impact ESG investment solutions. Funds are selected by an independent jury whose task is to assess their performance on both qualitative and quantitative criteria. The jury is made up of representatives of the industry players, pension funds, fund selectors, family office and third-party managers, independent advisors and academia.
