“Together with the SSF, we want to significantly advance impact-oriented investing in Switzerland and look forward to a lively exchange,” says radicant’s Head of SDG Evangelists and Research, Sasha Cisar. “Currently, an estimated USD 3.9 trillion in financing is needed to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals, compared to investments of only USD 1.4 trillion. Our collaboration with SSF aims to raise awareness of sustainable investing and close this gap as quickly as possible.”
As the first sustainable digital financial services provider in Switzerland, radicant is fully aligned with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the UN-Agenda 2030. radicant wants to make SDG-oriented investing fully transparent in its app and democratise asset management. At the same time, it aims to anchor the topic of sustainable investing in Switzerland even more firmly in the consciousness of Swiss investors in cooperation with the SSF.
