VuV Ombudsman’s Office
The Association of Independent Asset Managers Germany e. V. (VuV) has established a conciliation body in accordance with the EU Directive No. 2013/EU of 21.5.2013 on Alternative Dispute Resolution. Disputes between consumers and members of the VuV in connection with financial services transactions are to be settled before the VuV ombudsman in an out-of-court conciliation procedure.

In the event that a customer complaint cannot be resolved directly between the parties, this gives customers the option of appealing to the conciliation body. The conciliation procedure is free of charge for the applicant.

Our strategies for the inclusion of sustainability risks (Art. 3 Disclosure Regulation)
Due to legal regulations (Art. 3 Disclosure Regulation) we are obliged to provide the following information. We do not intend to advertise environmental or social features in our investment strategies or for other specific financial instruments:
- As a company, we want to contribute to a more sustainable, resource-efficient economy with the aim of reducing the risks and effects of climate change in particular. In addition to observing sustainability goals in our own corporate organization, we also see it as our task to make our customers aware of sustainability aspects when structuring their business relationships with us.
- Environmental conditions, social dislocation and or poor corporate governance can have a negative impact on the value of our clients’ investments and assets in a number of ways. These so-called sustainability risks can have a direct impact on the net assets, financial position and results of operations and also on the reputation of the investment properties. Since such risks cannot ultimately be completely ruled out, we have developed specific strategies for the financial services we offer in order to identify and limit sustainability risks.
- In order to limit sustainability risks, we try to identify and, if possible, exclude investments in companies that exhibit an increased risk potential. With specific exclusion criteria, we see ourselves in a position to align investment decisions with environmental, social or corporate values. For this purpose, we generally use valuation methods that are recognised in the market.
- The identification of suitable investments may involve, on the one hand, investing in investment funds whose investment policy is already equipped with a suitable and recognised sustainability filter to reduce sustainability risks. Identifying suitable investments to limit sustainability risks can also involve using recognised rating agencies for product selection in asset management. The concrete details result from the individual agreements.
- Our company’s strategies for incorporating sustainability risks are also incorporated into the company’s internal organizational guidelines. The observance of these guidelines is decisive for the evaluation of our employees’ work performance and thus has a significant influence on future salary development. In this respect, the remuneration policy is in line with our strategies for incorporating sustainability risks (Art. 5 Disclosure Regulation).
Explanation of non-consideration of adverse effects on sustainability factors
(Art. 4 Disclosure Regulation)
Due to legal regulations (Art. 4 para. 1 a para. 2 Disclosure Regulation, we are obliged to provide the following information:
- Investment decisions can have adverse effects on the environment (e.g. climate, water, biodiversity), on social and labour issues and can also be detrimental to the fight against corruption and bribery.
- As a matter of principle, we have a considerable interest in fulfilling our responsibility as a financial services provider and in helping to avoid such effects in the context of our investment decisions. However, according to the current state of affairs, the implementation of the legal requirements specified for this purpose is unreasonable due to the existing and still impending bureaucratic framework conditions. Moreover, important legal issues are still unresolved.
- In order to avoid legal disadvantages, we are therefore currently prevented from making a public statement to the effect that and in what way we take into account adverse effects on sustainability factors (environmental concerns, etc.) in the context of our investment decisions. We are therefore required to state on our website that we are disregarding them for the time being and until further clarification ( 4(1)(b) Disclosure Regulation.
- However, we expressly declare that this handling does not change our willingness to contribute to a more sustainable, resource-efficient economy with the aim, in particular, of reducing the risks and effects of climate change and other ecological or social ills.
