DescriptionLombard Odier Investment Managers (LOIM) is the institutional asset management business of the Lombard Odier Group, wholly owned and funded by its partners since its establishment in 1796. This partnership approach extends to our client relationships as, in our experience, building long-term collaborations, based on a deeper mutual understanding and alignment of interests, creates better outcomes for our clients. In turn, this feeds the sustainability of our own business. Therefore, we recognize the need to protect capital, rethink our approach to investment and embed sustainability at the heart of our investment philosophy. Our investment capabilities span fixed income, convertible bonds, equities, multi-asset, and alternatives. With 167 investment professionals, we are a global business with a network of 13 offices across Europe, Asia and North America.ApproachAt Lombard Odier Investment Managers (“LOIM”), we believe the current economic model is unsustainable. This model is “Wild” (Wasteful, Idle, Lopsided and Dirty). We believe the economy is already transitioning towards what we refer to as the CLIC TM model (“Circular, Lean, Inclusive and Clean”), and is fundamentally re-shaping risk and return dynamics across sectors and asset classes. Market forces are overtaking policymakers and creating a positive feedback loop. A powerful combination of investors, consumers and technological innovation forces policy to accelerate and increases transparency on sustainability issues. We believe it is our fiduciary duty to help our clients mitigate risks and capture opportunities associated with the transition to a CLIC TM economy. At LOIM, sustainable investing means: (i) dedicated sustainability strategies, where sustainability is the main driver of alpha; (ii) sustainability integration where our sustainability and ESG tools are integrated within portfolios to enhance returns and mitigate risks. As a result, sustainability is tightly coupled to our portfolio management and construction process for both our dedicated sustainability strategies and those that integrate sustainability.
