UBP improves its rating UN PRI

UBP improves its rating UN PRI

Union Bancaire Privée (UBP) has improved its scores in the UN PRI 2019 Assessment Report, performing in line with or above its peers in each module assessed and achieving the highest rating of A+ in the Strategy & Governance* class.


Launched in 2006, the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI) are the world’s leading proponent of responsible and sustainable investment. This initiative aims to establish links between investing and environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, as well as to help UN PRI signatories incorporate these factors into their investment and ownership decisions. The UN PRI initiative works with an international network of signatories to put the six Principles for Responsible Investment into practice**.

UBP has been a signatory of the UN PRI since 2012, demonstrating its commitment and determination to support responsible investing. Since signing up to the UN PRI, the Bank has implemented and strengthened its Responsible Investment Policy and rolled out ESG requirements across its private banking and asset management offering.

Karine Jesiolowski, Head of Responsible Investment for UBP’s Asset Management division, commented,

“This year’s UN PRI report recognises the steps taken by UBP to strengthen and enhance its ESG approach across the whole Group. This shows that we have a solid base from which we can continue to promote sustainable investment.”
