Sustainability is in our DNA
We know our clients, and our clients know us. Our clearly defined geographical area of activity, our positioning as a retail and SME bank, and the close relationships with our clients are the key features of our simple, responsible and sustainable business model.
Sustainability criteria are rooted in our lending policy
The client deposits and savings entrusted to us are funding home owners and SME. Our lending is broken down into many small and medium-sized amounts. Thanks to our regional roots and close client relationships we know the properties and businesses that we finance very well. In line with our careful lending policy, we take a cautious approach towards sectors that have questionable ecological, economic and social aspects.
Valiant operates exclusively in Switzerland
Given the very stringent regulatory environment in Switzerland, our approach to many ecological, economic and social aspects already meets relatively high standards. And given Valiant’s simple business model, we do not finance international projects, which would have to be critically examined in terms of fundamental human rights, large-scale environmental pollution, and forced or child labour. Exposure to sustainability risks is also low.
