Consulting with Purpose

We are here for helping you answering theses questions:

  • How can I evaluate companies, securities or an investment fund in order to define which one is investable in terms of ESG engagement and sustainable strategy?

  • How do companies actually operate when it comes to their ESG disclosures?

We investiguate companies in depth; looking at their governance strategy and SDG progress. Specifically we look at the coherence of their materiality matrix in regards of ESG disclosures. 

Moreover we select stocks in regards of our investment advisory policy

In commodities and in critical metals value chains, risk assessment can be challenging. Technical risks impacting the upstream supply chains as mining or exploration projects have to be understood as well as ESG disclosures when mentioned.

Ethore has accumulated since year 2003 a valuable experience in shaping portfolio in this alternative asset class; and also as Investment Adviser to several investment funds authorized by FINMA. 
Our first priority is always the interests of clients, in providing solutions, innovative concepts, while paying attention to adaptability to needs.

Our Story

The Framework
Created in 2003 by Laurent Krull ethore SA (formerly LKConsult) has gained reputation in co-founding and promoting special niche funds, as well as providing investment advisory. 

30 years of international expertise in mineral projects, projects management and Investment advisory. 

Mandated as independent technical adviser and buy-side analyst for several investment funds focused on the mineral sector (Gold, PGM, Base Metals, Minor Metals and Rare Earth Elements).

Proven track record and success stories, thanks to a team work along the career, and to a worldwide geologists network.

Data and Knowledge management is completed by risk assessment software and GIS/ESG database.

How an expertise can evolve?

We have traveled  to all continents, visited many projects, attended many conferences, meetings or forums in the metal sector. These all are part of investigation and risk assessment work which has led us to provide the financial world with state-of-the-art scientific expertise.

¨A matter of risk management and ethics then came ESG"

Technical, environmental and societal risks have always been included in each estimate of the development potential of companies we analyzed.
The integration of the investment risk is done on the basis of different evaluation and modeling which depend on the level of development of the projects and the companies.

Thanks to a multidisciplinary approach, combined with scientific and market monitoring, our analyzes have made it possible to structure highly competitive securities portfolios in the metals sector and their value chains.

In 2020, the European taxonomy has defined the ESG criteria linked to the development of a sustainable economy which made it possible to change our risk parameters and to include the objectives of sustainable development.

This evolution within our company was completed by a certification in sustainable finance and recently by becoming a signatory to the principles of responsible investment (UNPRI).

Ethore is the contraction of 'ethical Ore'. In the past, the approach was not always understood, whether at the level of market surveillance authorities or investors. Short-termism and the chase for good opportunities sometimes do not fit with ethics. 
Nevertheless we are here to disrupt old habits and enable any investor to get more insights towards responsible investing.

Today the financial world is facing a profound change in these ESG reporting and management habits; are you part of this change for the better?

ethore SA has evolved through its risk management approach to responsible investment advisory. 

Today, Ethore SA is engaged in an ethical and responsible approach in advising for sustainable and responsible investment.
