Wim Van Hyfte, Global Head of ESG Investments and Research, CANDRIAM, shares his vision of the partnership :
“In the urgent and necessary transition to a more sustainable world, everyone must play their part. The Kedge-Candriam chair, linking the strengths of two institutions recognized for their know-how in responsible investment, is a pioneering initiative of international scope with the aim of training future generations of investors through its “pedagogy” axis (development of innovative educational content, networking, targeted internships and dissertations, etc.) of which the MSc Sustainable Finance is a major component. This chair is therefore anchored at the heart of Candriam's corporate mission, entirely focused on accelerating change through investment. By advancing research on the materiality of the impact of investments, we want to help investors make allocation choices that support a long-term vision in accordance with these principles."
