VP Bank was given high marks in the “Sustainability in Liechtenstein” analysis of Liechtenstein-registered equity funds. The “VP Bank Best Manager European Equities”, “VP Bank Best Manager Swiss Equities” and “VP Bank Best Manager World Equities” funds were included in the rankings with the best rating (“BBB” or higher).
The funds under consideration were assessed according to environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria. To that end, the business impacts of the portfolio companies are analysed and assessed as regards these criteria.
The “Sustainability in Liechtenstein” report was published by the Liechtenstein Investment Fund Association, the Liechtenstein Bankers Association, the Association of Liechtenstein Charitable Foundations with support from the Center for Social and Sustainable Products (CSSP) and other private contributors.
The VP Bank funds winning recognition demonstrate that attractive yields can go hand in hand with sustainable investment.

This award also demonstrates that both clients and industry professionals perceive and appreciate the service quality and performance of the investment products.
