BANOR FOR UNICEF

The BANOR for UNICEF project was conceived to support the “Fighting Child Mortality” initiative launched by UNICEF to save children’s lives throughout the world. All too often, babies and children under five die from causes the are entirely preventable. BANOR supports UNICEF’s campaign through the new UNICEF class of the Banor SICAV Euro Bond Absolute Return fund, with 40% of fees donated to the Italian National Committee for UNICEF.

WHY WE DEVELOPED “BANOR FOR UNICEF”?

THE SITUATION

Professionals in our sector and our clients/investors are, for the most part, fortunate people, at least from a material perspective. However there are people in the world who are less fortunate, especially babies and children and UNICEF takes care of them.

THE OPPORTUNITY

There are very few opportunities in life in which everyone (potentially) wins. We offer an investment in a low-risk fund. The fund pays us management fees and we pay a large proportion of them to UNICEF. If the fund continues to do well, our investors win, we win (albeit a little less), UNICEF receives a donation and many children will receive vital help.

IN OTHER WORDS

You can do good while continuing to look after your portfolio!

CHILDREN ARE CHILDREN

UNICEF: THE UNITED NATIONS FUND FOR CHILDREN

Children are children. They’re not toys, they’re not soldiers, they’re not brides. It doesn’t matter where they’re born or grow up, whether their country is at war or at peace. Children need care, protection and food. And even if they’re enslaved, refugees or exploited, no-one can stop them from dreaming.

That’s why every day, in more than 190 countries around the world, even the most remote and difficult, UNICEF brings children solutions that are called vaccines, water, schools and shelter. Every day, UNICEF fights to reduce the number of child deaths – right down to zero – with effective, low-cost initiatives such as vaccination programmes and treatments for acute malnutrition.

UNICEF conducts programmes in the fields of health, services, water supply, education, and in protecting and assisting mothers and children. It takes action in humanitarian emergencies, not only by sending essential supplies such as high-nutrition food for children, health and medicine kits, water purification tablets, and waterproof sheeting and blankets. It also provides psychological support programmes for children traumatised by conflict or by natural disasters.

For both its development and its emergency programmes, working closely with the beneficiary communities is always a key element of UNICEF’s intervention methods. UNICEF provides these communities with technical and material support, so that they can take ownership of their own, sustainable long-term development.
