SSF Newsletter April 2017: Seeds of change

A long Easter weekend lies ahead. Over the past two months, seeds have sprouted not just in nature but in the field of sustainable finance, too.


End of March, SSF launched its publication in the area of private wealth management, an area where we see clear growth potential for the Swiss sustainable finance market. We have also compiled our 2016 annual report to help give our stakeholders an overview of the various activities and projects SSF has been involved in. Furthermore, the public side-event to our upcoming members’ assembly on 13 June is gaining shape: it will feature a keynote speech from the President of the Swiss Confederation, Federal Councillor Doris Leuthard. This prominent keynote is yet another sign that sustainable finance is gaining ground - the broad array of recent reports, media coverage and market news are further evidence of this trend.


With these and other news we wish you a joyful Easter break.


Kind regards


Sabine Döbeli
