We are committed to shaping a sustainable future: ahead of the market on ESG and Sustainable Finance strategies

Indefi has pioneered ESG and Sustainable Finance consulting to asset managers and investors as early as 2011. Our first ESG due diligence was completed that year, followed by the first ESG vendor due diligence in 2013 and the first analysis of exposure to climate risk and the impact on UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2017. We were among the first strategy consulting firms to join the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) in 2016.

ESG and sustainability are integrated into all our business practices, and we have a strong track record in combined strategy and ESG consulting services.


Our Convictions

We firmly believe that financial investors have the power and responsibility to drive meaningful change and support the journey towards sustainability: that is why we have always been at the forefront of the sustainability trends that shape the success of our clients. Through strategic thinking, we help asset managers and owners develop and maintain sustainable investment strategies at portfolio and company level.
