All displayed values and charts represent the P-Tranche.
- Selection of sustainability sectors = generating a positive impact
- Screening for negative criteria = Avoidance of negative impact
- Screening for further criteria
- Fundamental analysis and portfolio composition
Our investment universe basically consists of the following 10 different sectors:
Hydrogen / fuel cells
renewable energies (solar, wind)
electric mobility / batteries
drinking water treatment
health / education
sustainable agriculture / forestry
environmentally friendly products
green building / smart cities
Negative criteria / exclusion criteria
agricultural genetic engineering
speculation with food
harmful behaviour to the environment
armor, cluster bombs
human rights violations
Non-ratification of the Kyoto Protocol
unfree states according to Freedom House
non-proliferation treaty violations
The Pure Play approach means that sustainable investments focus on investing in companies that are only active in a specific sector, such as hydrogen or solar. This ensures that conglomerates, which often have a certain – albeit small – percentage in nuclear energy or similar sectors that we exclude, cannot find their way into our portfolio. It is therefore purer (pure) and easier to assess sustainability criteria.
What we do not apply is the so-called best-in-class approach:
The best-in-class approach describes a frequently used concept for selecting companies. The best sustainable companies are selected from all industries. In many cases, however, this approach does not go far enough, as the investor does not want the most sustainable oil shares, for example, but no oil shares at all.

The ISS ESG Fund Rating assesses the environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance of a fund within its reference group with 1 to 5 stars. Funds with 4 or 5 stars are among the top 30% in their reference group or have a strong sustainability rating in absolute terms.
The ISS ESG Fund Rating Stars are based on the average ISS ESG sustainability rating of companies and countries in whose securities a fund invests. The ISS ESG rating evaluates the sustainability performance of companies based on material and industry-specific environmental, social and governance criteria along the value chain.
The FWW FundStars® are based on risk-adjusted performance (RAP). This two-dimensional key figure is calculated from the performance achieved and the risk taken (volatility). For the FWW FundStars®, the funds are classified into 5 ranking levels of 20 percent each, from which the award of 5 to 1 stars is derived. The best 20 percent of the funds receive five stars.
