Sustainability: The right ESG data for your portfolio and the planet 

The increasing importance of socially responsible investing brings its own challenges, but great opportunities as well. We capture your beliefs and develop solutions and products on this basis that offer you a range of implementation options. 

Sustainability is no longer a trend or a special topic but should be considered in all investments. ESG criteria are taken into account in 45% of our managed assets – and the trend is rising. 

At Quoniam, sustainability begins in house. We have set ourselves goals for sustainability and our guidelines for responsible investment are based on them. We are also guided by national and international standards. 

SRI committee and team 

Cross-team expertise 

The SRI committee reviews and updates our SRI strategy and all matters relating to screening, data quality, integration and engagement. It also reviews compliance with our Responsible Investment Guidelines. 

Thomas Kieselstein, CIO (Head)

Carlos Rudolph, CSR Specialist

Mara Schneider, SRI Manager

Dr. Veronika Herzberger, Portfolio Management

Johannes Probst, Portfolio Management


The SRI committee is supported by experts from the Product Management, Governance & Business Advisory, Client Relations, Product Communications and Marketing departments. Together, they form the SRI team, which plans and realises the implementation of ESG strategies and regulatory requirements.  

As part of the Union Investment Group, we also work closely with Union Investment’s ESG team in the areas of engagement and proxy voting, and regularly exchange views on the topics of EU regulations, data providers, ESG strategies and sustainability risks.
