In 2015, Fondation Botnar benefited from a significant boost to its capital base, resulting in greater funding potential and commensurate increase in demand over time. The following year, in 2016, the foundation’s board committed to building organisational capacity to support the implementation of its mandate. This included appointing a CEO and recruiting a dedicated team to effectively manage the foundation’s future strategic direction, including the evaluation and roll-out of relevant projects and programs.
The Fondation Botnar assets of CHF 4.2 billion (as of 31 December 2021) are invested according to leading principles of sustainable institutional asset management. Click here to read our Investment Beliefs and Principles.
