Recognised for its innovative SRI approach, Sycomore AM is reinforcing its SRI range with a fund focused on human capital, Sycomore Happy at Work.
For Christine Kolb, founding partner and head of business development, “We live in a world which puts innovation at the heart of company performance; and we are repositioning human capital as a key element in the creation of sustainable value”.
A contented employee is more efficient and creative
Cyril Charlot, founding partner and manager of the Sycomore Happy at Work Fund, added: “We have identified three dimensions which promote professional fulfilment and are the hallmarks of sustainable performance: the quality of work life, motivation and empowerment. They improve an employee’s engagement and help drive productivity. A contented employee is more efficient and creative and feels more involved.”
An analysis fueled by groundwork and on-site visits
The investment team will harness performance indicators that already feature in its proprietary ESG research tool and complete its analysis with innovative channels that will include field surveys to help assess employee satisfaction levels.
Sycomore AM’s SRI strategy has 4 open-ended funds with more than EUR 600 M under management, making us one of France’s leading SRI investment firms.
