Can you summarise your company’s activity in a few words?
Jean-Yves Maldague . — “ Candriam stands for ‘Conviction and Responsibility in Asset Management’: we are a global multi-asset manager focused on sustainable and responsible investments. Accelerating investor appetite for ESG-related funds and strategies propelled total assets under management (AUM) at our company to a record €158 billion at year-end 2021. Also, Candriam is an affiliate of New York Life, a Fortune 100© company. Candriam Luxembourg, the group parent company, employs approximately 80 staff members.
You have just renewed your Paperjam + Delano Club membership. What convinced you to do so?
“Candriam is an important actor of the Luxembourg financial centre and the Paperjam + Delano Club is a great way for us to reach out to clients, to business partners, to suppliers and even to quality candidates that would be interested in joining our group. Last but not least, our local 80+ employees are the best ambassadors for our brand and for our actively managed strategies. The Paperjam + Delano Club gives them an opportunity to talk about what we stand for: ‘Conviction and Responsibility in Asset Management’.
What in particular are you looking to get from the Club? And what does your organisation have to offer to other Club members?
“We are looking for a place to exchange on local news, network and share our vision of asset management. It includes putting our clients first, instiling a sense of responsibility throughout the company and cultivating long-term relationships with employees and clients.”
