At Alpen Partners , we build customizable portfolios for clients who want to incorporate sustainability into their investment strategy. Additionally, we allow for additional ‘screens’ that ensure their holdings reflect their values. For example, if our client doesn’t want to invest in tobacco companies, we can remove them from the selection process altogether.
