A raison d'être
Crédit Mutuel Asset Management has adopted Crédit Mutuel Alliance Fédérale's raison d'être: 'Ensemble, écouter et agir' (Listen and act together).
In 2020, Crédit Mutuel Alliance Fédérale was the first French bank to adopt the 'Entreprise à mission' model (company having a social and environmental mission in addition to its for-profit activity). It aligned its social and environmental objectives with its corporate purpose and enshrined them in its articles of incorporation. In line with the UN's sustainable development objectives, these statutory objectives make it possible to work for a fairer and more sustainable society.

A dedicated team
We are a team of dedicated professionals. Our experience, energy and organisation are firmly focused on our customers in order to offer tailored solutions. These could be collective, in open-ended funds, or customised, in dedicated funds or insurance.
Our investment teams are available and accessible. They give our customers access to expertise that is both global and specialised in all listed asset management strategies: fixed income, equity, multi-asset or quantitative areas. This proximity is reflected in the management of nearly 400 dedicated funds representing more than 10 billion euros in assets under management at the end of 2020.
Crédit Mutuel Asset Management is committed to providing access to its teams, managers and experts in order to serve its customers' goals as closely as possible.
Our priority is to implement a responsible and sustainable approach in each of our activities and areas of expertise. We owe it to our customers to live up to their expectations by giving meaning to their investments. Our investment processes and expert teams affirm our convictions in responsible finance. Our range of products meets the needs of each customer, and helps fund virtuous solutions for a just ecological and energy transition for all.
We believe that the integration of ESG issues 4 allows us to identify risks and opportunities that we might not have been able to identify with a vision focused solely on financial aspects. We also believe that we owe this approach to our customers. We aim to fully integrate ESG issues at three levels: in issuer analysis, investment decisions and portfolio construction.
Crédit Mutuel Asset Management's ambition: '100% of open-ended funds under active management will be classified as Article 8 or Article 9 according to the SFDR and Category 1 or Category 2 according to the French regulations.'
