Sustainability is more than just a trend - this also applies to financial investments. Whether private or institutional, the market for green shares, bonds, and incentive loans is growing. This is not only due to social developments, but also to political measures such as the Green Deal, which aims to make Europe climate-neutral by 2050. Sustainability, however, also includes - within the framework of ESG - social and governance-related aspects. True experts are needed for all of this.
Our certificate program Sustainable Investing shows what is important in sustainable investments. Opportunities, risks, and special features - participants learn all this in detail, in a practical way, and with scientific expertise. Together with the DVFA, we succeed in optimally linking between science and practice. So you learn how to analyse and correctly value investments.
The program takes place alternately at DVFA in Frankfurt (in autumn) and at TUM Campus Heilbronn (in spring), located in the heart of one of the most innovative regions in Germany.
You learn how to develop sustainable investment strategies and meet sustainability reporting requirements. Sustainability risk management and investment advice are also on the agenda:
Trust us: Once you have successfully completed our course, you will know what matters in terms of strategy and product-specific sustainable investments.
This makes the program ideal for financial, investment, and retail advisors, analysts, credit, corporate and risk management advisors, corporate finance, treasury, investor relations, foundation staff and executives.
Why did you participate in the Sustainable Investing program?
“I was looking for further training in the area of sustainability and was interested in a combination of purely theoretical knowledge and relevant practical aspects.”
Were your expectations of the program’s content met? What did you like about it?
“Yes, absolutely. I found the selection of lecturers particularly positive - a successful combination of people with strong academic backgrounds as well as people with clear practical relevance, and the wide range of topics across the eight modules.”
What are your key learnings from the Sustainable Investing program?
“There are still uncertainties around regulation and interpretation, e.g. at the country level, but we are able to act and must continue to make our clients aware of the topic and its necessity. ESG is not only about the environment. Social and governance aspects will become more important and continue to gain momentum. Sustainability is a trend that is here to stay. Impact-oriented solutions are becoming increasingly important.”
