Deep roots in philanthropy
For over 180 years, the Brenninkmeijer family owners have supported communities through philanthropic activities. Growing the business enabled them to do even more. Now, they manage their philanthropic activities through the Laudes Foundation, leading and supporting initiatives that seek to transform industry and economic systems and through Porticus which develops and manages over 1,000 programmes in 65 countries to create a sustainable future where human dignity flourishes.
“It is possible to seek financial returns and be equally dedicated to taking responsibility for the world around us.”
A responsible long-term investment approach
We have always sought a long-term investment approach, while remaining true to our values of human dignity, sustainability and good corporate citizenship. We believe a better, more sustainable approach to investing is not just preferable, it’s necessary.
We understand what continuity means, having been the exclusive asset manager of the Brenninkmeijer family owners, their charities and related pension funds for almost a century. We manage these assets and for some we take over the entire balance sheet management as their fiduciary manager.
We want to make a sustainable and long-term contribution to maintain and grow our clients’ assets while investing responsibly.
