Our values

“Conviction & Responsibility”: our core values since 1998.

Embedded in our name, Conviction AND Responsibility In Asset Management, these values have made our company what it is today. A firm that is led by conviction and is driven by a responsible approach to investing.

Convictions

What is the conviction that has driven us since our inception?

Conviction means believing in the value of the work we do every day. Our mission is to deliver superior investment returns, solutions and service to our clients while managing our impact on society, the environment and all stakeholders.

It means trusting our expertise and our products and holding our people and practices to the highest standards. It also means challenging ourselves to never stop learning, leveraging different perspectives and recognising the importance of a global mindset to make the right decisions for our clients.

Responsibility

Responsibility is an essential value that we never compromise

We always prioritise our client needs and objectives. As long-term thinkers, we are deeply invested in the future success of our clients and people, and through our sustainable and responsible investment and business practices, we strive to be the best corporate citizen we can be for all our stakeholders.

Our culture

Our culture is driven by people who care deeply about doing the right thing - and doing it sustainability. In our view that is a distinguishing feature of Candriam and shapes how we interact with each other and our investors. It makes us steer clear of risky short-term behaviour and it helps us anticipate influential trends. Importantly, it strengthens our commitment to be a reliable and trustworthy partner that is able to create long-term sustainable value for clients in a fast-changing world.

Candriam Academy: free online trainings for SRI 

Our belief that investment should be a driving force in the transition towards a more sustainable economy has led Candriam to develop a platform that gives everyone the opportunity to learn about sustainable investing.

To that end, CANDRIAM created in 2017 the Candriam Academy, the world's first free-to-access online training program on ESG investing. 

12,000 investors from 40 countries have already taken the course!

A little history

 

The roots of responsible investment at Candriam run deep. They date back to 1996, when only a few pioneers were interested in the subject. That year, Candriam launched its first  sustainable fund. Today, we are a global leader in ESG, managing more than €100 billion in ESG-related assets and offering over 30 sustainable strategy products covering all asset classes and global markets.
