Invest in Visions wins two Boutiquen Awards

The Impact investor Invest in Visions has won the Boutiquen Award in the categories “Sustainability” and “Investor Communication”. The Boutiquen Awards are reserved for investment funds of smaller independent asset managers that stand out from the competition, among other things, through good product quality and high transparency.

Initiated by Mein Geld Medien, AECON Fondsmarketing and Pro Boutiquen Fonds, the prizes are awarded in ten different categories. The jury is made up of experienced industry experts, including Dr Hendrik Leber, Managing Partner of ACATIS Investment KVG mbH, Detlef Glow, Head of Lipper EMEA Research, Refinitiv and Roland Kölsch, Qualitätssicherungsgesellschaft Nachhaltiger Geldanlagen mbH.

Laudator Jörg Stotz, Spokesman of the Management Board at HANSAINVEST, who presented the award in the category “Investor Communication”, particularly emphasised the transparency as well as the increasing opinion leadership of Invest in Visions: “Using content strategies, the employees produce product-neutral blog posts to convey their impact investing messages to investors.” In this way, Invest in Visions is significantly contributing to a better understanding of impact investing and microfinance in particular.

In his laudation in the category “Sustainability”, Gunnar Rieke, Head of Investor Services at Donner & Reuschel, praised the sustainability positioning of Invest in Visions as a whole, not just an individual investment fund: “From formal guidelines with a sustainability strategy at both company and portfolio level, to concrete SDG targets within the framework of Art. 9 of the Disclosure Regulation with clear KPIs and a related structured review process, to regular reporting by means of various communication channels, everything a professional impact manager needs is in place at Invest in Visions.”

Invest in Visions is a worthy winner of this year’s Boutiques Sustainability Award.

It is important to us that we make the impact investing expertise we have acquired over more than 15 years available to a broad public and that we, as impact investors, always go the extra mile when it comes to sustainability.” Special thanks go to the entire international team of Invest in Visions, without whom the awards could not have been won.
