Employees and staff.
Our employees stand by their responsibility. We actively measure our carbon footprint in order to improve it. We adhere to the highest standards in areas such as compliance, corporate governance, data protection and anti-money laundering. Each and every one of us contributes to our success.
Our balance sheet is characterized by a core capital ratio that is a multiple of the ratio required by the regulator. This enables us to make independent decisions even in an uncertain world.
The bank's capital is exclusively in the hands of a family and senior employees. We act independently and with a clear signature.
We create transparency with clear measurement indicators. However, we also offer you the opportunity to implement your understanding of sustainability with our support.
Our investment methods have the clear objective of increasing and preserving value. It is our conviction that this can only be achieved in the long-term by incorporating sustainable criteria. Our asset management complements Gutmann's fundamental views with ecological, social and ethical criteria as well as features on responsible corporate governance. This enables a comprehensive assessment of long-term risks and earnings opportunities. If so desired, we also work according to strict exclusion criteria.
We are aware of our social responsibility. For many years, we have supported aid organizations Caritas and the Red Cross as well as several social projects.
