Investissements socialement responsables
The King Baudouin Foundation as a preferred partner
In 2015, BNP Paribas Fortis Private Banking and the King Baudouin Foundation formed a unique partnership. We give a percentage of the assets managed within one of our socially responsible investment options to the foundation's Venture Philanthropy Fund. Of course, this doesn't cost investors anything, as it simply comes out of the bank's management fees.
The Venture Philanthropy Fund offers structural support spread over a three-year period to organisations or companies from Belgium's social economy. An independent investment committee selects the projects to receive financial aid from the fund.
Thanks to the dazzling success achieved by sustainable investments, BNP Paribas Fortis Private Banking has become the main financial sponsor of the Venture Philanthropy Fund.
Although we give a significant financial boost to the projects chosen, it is our investor customers who have the final say, as they can vote for their favourite project each year.
