Responsible and sustainable investments
The basis of the Sarasin Group's success is also founded on its sustainable investment strategy and its solid, sustainable know-how gleaned from over twenty years of experience. Sarasin responded promptly – ahead of other banks – to the need for greater transparency, as well as comprehensive and proactive management of risks and opportunities.

The following objectives should be achieved by the end of 2012:
|Duplication of sustainable assets under management to CHF 25 billion|
|International roll-out of sustainable approach|
|Introducing innovative sustainability products to the market|
|Maintaining market leadership in sustainable assets under management in Switzerland|
In order to expand its leading role, the decision was taken by management in early 2011 to gear the investment strategy of Bank Sarasin even more strongly towards sustainability.
In addition to sustainable products, Bank Sarasin now offers responsibly managed solutions.
In sustainable asset management, the investment instruments are subject to a stringent assessment based on sustainability criteria in addition to the financial analysis.
