Warren Buffet once said:
“Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago”.

In Europe, our 2 shareholders have been planting trees for more than 52 and 150 years respectively pioneering sustainable investments both in listed as well as in primary markets. Our strong “trees” are performing asset allocation strategies, leading innovative impact funds in renewable energy or ocean regeneration or simply performing Asian strategies.

Whether you are from the buy-side or the sell-side, I’d be delighted to jointly explore how we can create some “shade” over a coffee.
