Education and equal opportunity: better prospects for all, including your portfolio.
Invest your money for the benefit of all – the world and your portfolio
Knowledge is power. But not everyone has the same educational opportunities. We allow you to make targeted investments in education and equal opportunities. You not only improve living conditions around the world and throughout society, you also reap the rewards.
Let your investment give everyone the same opportunities
Vocational training improves living standards. This sounds self-evident in our part of the world, but it’s not the case everywhere. Educational systems differ greatly around the world, and these differences, whether in early childhood education or further training for adults, have an impact on professional prospects.
Invest in education and equal opportunity.
The UN takes a clear line here: we need to promote education and equal opportunity on a global basis. That’s why education is one of the key Sustainable Development Goals on its political agenda. Because who wouldn’t want to help a child turn their dream into a career?
Basic training and vocational education are the foundations for higher quality of life, which we need to extend to all children and adults, regardless of their nationality, place of residence, wealth, gender, social status, cultural background and physical or mental disabilities. Companies the world over are working on this, building infrastructure and learning platforms, awarding scholarships and offering targeted support to minorities.
In the ‘education and equal opportunity’ investment topic we’ve selected companies that are committed to better education and equal opportunities worldwide, taking into account the following SDGs:
Promoting an inclusive education system
Reducing inequality between countries
Promoting peaceful and sustainable development in societies
A world of equal opportunities? It’s in your hands
Investing in education and equal opportunity means working towards a safer, healthier world and the well-being of society as a whole. The primary goal is equality, so that in the long term, social background becomes irrelevant and social inequalities are minimised. That’s why we invest in companies that care about the education of children, young people and adults. The aim is to improve equality of opportunity, in particular for the poorest and most disadvantaged.
