ASN draws on the global expertise of BNP Paribas Securities Services and will be supported by the operational and relationship management teams in Amsterdam. Founded in 1993, ASN Impact Investors manages sustainable investment funds with an innovative strategy, including the ASN Biodiversity Fund, which invests in protecting and restoring biodiversity worldwide. With its investment policy, ASN focuses on companies and projects with good financial prospects that accelerate the transition to a sustainable world with future-proof business activities.

‘We believe that companies, governments, and projects, that in addition to a good financial result also positively contribute to climate, biodiversity, and human rights, are the future. We therefore want to work with partners that have a similar commitment and who are truly committed to a sustainable world. We are convinced that we have found this in BNP Paribas Securities Services. Hence, we have confidence in a longstanding and fruitful collaboration.’
