Although a sound return and increasing shareholder value are important goals for us, Teslin does not view investing as being just about profit. The cornerstone of our vision, values and investment philosophy is good governance. As such, it also goes without saying that we apply these values to the way we run our own business, as illustrated by our involvement in industry associations and our signing the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment.
Teslin is an active participant in Eumedion, a foundation that represents the corporate governance and sustainability interests of its affiliated institutional investors. The goal of these pension funds, insurance companies, investment organisations and capital managers is to improve the governance, and the environmental and social performance of listed companies.
Teslin is also affiliated to the Dutch Fund and Asset Management Association ('DUFAS'), an association of asset managers and investment organisations operating in the Netherlands. DUFAS is not an investment fund, but a Dutch sector organisation run by and for professional asset managers.
Teslin is a signatory of the Principles for Responsible Investments. Fair and responsible entrepreneurship and investment are integral to Teslin’s investment policies and overall investment philosophy. We use specific investment criteria to select (potential) investments, including (direct and indirect) criteria relating to entrepreneurship. The six Principles for Responsible Investment provide us with a framework for making these decisions.
