ABOUT US

Corporate Governance

Responsible Property Investment

INTERNOS recognises the impact of sustainability issues on the investment performance of real estate assets and believes it has a fiduciary duty to its clients to consider the risks and opportunities in its investment decisions and activities.

Our approach to sustainability is focused on minimising the impact of our activities on the environment and creating a positive impact on the communities where we invest.

We are working towards becoming signatories to the United Nations Principles of Responsible Investment (UN PRI), which were developed to recognise the growing importance of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues in investment practice.

Created by the United Nations Secretary-General, the UN PRI initiative seeks to understand the implications of these issues for investors and support their incorporation into investment decision-making, ultimately contributing to a more sustainable financial system.

Corporate Governance

INTERNOS invests in and manages real estate assets across Europe on behalf of a wide range of investors, funds, occupiers and communities, all with their own objectives and requirements. To ensure that we operate with integrity in a completely ethical manner, while meeting the objectives of our clients and investors, INTERNOS has established a number of committees and internal policies and procedures. These are designed to help generate investment returns, ensure we meet our regulatory and fiduciary responsibilities and obligations and enhance risk mitigation. A system of checks and balances is in place that is designed to help prevent conflicts of interest and preserve the integrity of our services.
