Company employees and even investors who until now had no social inclinations are now interested in the issue. Companies that refuse to act and support female leadership are singled out.

In charge of the GreenWise Portfolios at RGP Investments, Alexandra Tanguay thanks her daring to achieve her current position.

This fall, we launched a brand new product, GreenWise Portfolios, powered by RGP Investments.
“The GreenWise wallet is a 100% digital launch, so no paper was printed on our premises. We took the estimated paper budget from the launch of the SectorWise portfolios and purchased 5,000 trees with that amount. We wanted to make the IR very concrete for the advisor and the client, ”says Charles-Antoine Garon.
The difference against the competition

Based on materiality, , RGP Investments hopes to select companies that make a real difference for the planet, without compromising on performance and offering a diversified solution.
