Company Profile: Koninklijke Philips NV

Company Profile: Philips

In our new SRI Expert Briefing we explore Koninklijke Philips NV (“Philips”) from an investment and ESG perspective, providing an insight into both the company and how stocks are researched and approved for our SRI-screened Amity funds.

Philips traces its history back to the late-19th-century Netherlands, as it grew to be one of the largest producers of carbon-filament lamps in Europe. The company has developed its product portfolio since then, leaving behind its traditional lighting and home electronics business behind, moving into new areas such as televisions and DVD. 

What does the briefing cover?

The briefing explores an overview of the company and looks at the firm as an investment opportunity. Within this, it researches into the investment case, touching on the company’s commitment to innovation. Furthermore, it looks at the responsible and sustainable investment case, referencing the circular model mentioned in our recent Amity Insight: the waste problem. Then, drawing on the above, comes to a conclusion by identifying future trends.
