LVM-Lebensversicherung has expanded the fund range of its LVM-Fonds-Rente: two additional ETFs are now available that reflect the performance of indices compiled from a sustainability perspective. This means that four of the seven ETFs in the fund range now have green and social features (Art. 8 TranspVO). In addition to ETFs, the fund range includes all seven actively managed funds in the LVM family of funds.
One of the two newly launched ETFs, the iShares MSCI EM SRI UCITS is an equity fund that offers exposure to emerging market companies from around the world. The other, the Bloomberg MSCI Euro Area Liquid Corporates Sustainable UCITS, contains Eurozone corporate bonds and is therefore particularly well suited for maturity management.
“With a total of seven ETFs, we stay true to our philosophy and rely on a small range of funds that has been put together very carefully,” explains Dr. Rainer Wilmink, head of personal divisions on the LVM board. “This comparatively low level of complexity also suits our LVM shop stewards and their employees: as part of personalized client advice, they can map all relevant capital investment strategies for the provision of old-age services according to the opportunity/risk and sustainability considerations in the savings phase.”
A key reason for the expansion of the fund range is corresponding client demand, as can be seen by looking at last year’s new business: “Nearly a quarter of the contributions that LVM clients have invested in mutual funds pensions are in the savings phase Funds flowed that reflect the performance of the compiled indices from a sustainability perspective,” reports Dr. Rainer Wilmink.
The step also takes into account the new “LVM Sustainability Strategy 2025”: one of the seven fields of action deals with the anchoring of sustainability in the company’s financial and insurance products.
