Investment process

Positive criteria

Our investment universe basically consists of the following 10 different sectors:

Hydrogen / fuel cells

renewable energies (solar, wind)

electric mobility / batteries

energy efficiency

drinking water treatment

organic food

health / education

sustainable agriculture / forestry

environmentally friendly products

green building / smart cities

Negative criteria / exclusion criteria


agricultural genetic engineering

nuclear energy


fossil fuels


genetic engineering

speculation with food

harmful behaviour to the environment





tobacco products

armor, cluster bombs

child labour

human rights violations

animal experiments


Non-ratification of the Kyoto Protocol

Labour Rights

child labour

human rights

death penalty

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:

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.

Moringstar Rating

The green benefit Global Impact Fund acquired a top-rating of 4 stars from Morningstar which labels it as one of the best 22.5% of its category based on investment goals.

Sector: Ecology

Morningstar Rating 4 Sterne


The innovative MVD Fund Rating developed by Mountain-View Data follows a entirely different approach compared to other classic fund ratings. The focus is on which funds will be most successful in the future and not only on which fund has performed best in the past. The much stronger future orientation distinguishes the MVD fund rating from conventional fund ratings.

Mountain View 6 Sterne

The stronger weighting of current developments ensures that fund managers can in no way rest on their withered laurels in the MVD Fund Rating.

Simplified, the following calculation is used for the fund rating:

High (out)performance + rising trend + low risk = high MVD fund rating.
