On the other hand, the recognition of CaixaBank AM in direct investment equities has been achieved thanks to the integration of ESG factors in the investment processes (Direct-Listed equity - active fundamental).

"At VidaCaixa we understand SRI as a way of managing investments and not as a philosophy to apply to a product in our portfolio. For this reason, 100% of the assets we manage have included ASG aspects in investment decisions for more than 20 years. We are very satisfied that PRI has once again recognized the company's leadership in this regard", stated the CEO of VidaCaixa, Javier Valle.
