Constanter Investment Office
The success of our investments is indispensable to our continued philanthropic work. We have a dedicated Investment Office which provides expert advice on our investment portfolio, seeking returns that don’t come at the expense of people or the planet, but rather positively contribute towards our mission. This team is instrumental in executing on the investment strategy. We work with outside specialists to manage individual securities and investments. By taking an active, engaged approach, we try to ensure our investments abide by the high ethical principles set out in our responsible investment guidelines.
Our Board is ultimately responsible for all Constanter’s activities across philanthropy, investment, and audit and compliance. It is supported by dedicated committees that it appoints to help it carry out each of these tasks. Members of the Board are not remunerated for their work in relation to these roles.
