A two-fold responsible fund


Richelieu CityZen (*) is an European equity fund dedicated to investing in the more virtuous companies based on ESG criteria. The fund aims at combining financial performance and positive impact by including sustainable themes and non-financial factors.
Managed by Clémence de Rothiacob and David Autin, the Richelieu CityZen fund’s responsible approach is based on two levels: firstly, the investment universe is comprised of six main themes mostly derived from the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) from the 2030 Agenda of the United Nations and secondly, stock-picking is guided by a best-in-universe methodology with respect to ESG practices.

(*) The Richelieu CityZen fund is officially launched on 4 November 2019, when the change in investment strategy of the Richelieu Europe Quality fund comes into effect.
