You are an Ethical Bank

The key values of an Ethical bank are based on the following points:

  • Release the use of savings funds collected to finance organizations that help build a sustainable future for people, organizations and the environment
  • Calculating a credit granting scoring to companies in which different social and environmental criteria are considered (in addition to the usual criteria), with a performance compared to others in the same sector
  • Offering diversified investment supports for investors wishing to invest in companies as "sustainable" as possible, directly in markets via discretionary management, or through an investment in a "sustainable“ fund
  • Practicing transparency, as it believes that its clients have the right to know what projects are financed through their savings by informing them regularly
