Documentary by Banca March and Atresmedia among the Mediterranean Fund’s ocean conservation initiatives

  • Banca March has premiered a documentary which seeks to raise awareness of the importance of ocean conservation, with a particular focus on Posidonia oceanica, a seagrass species which is endemic to the Mediterranean Sea.
  • The production was undertaken with Atresmedia and is one of the ocean conservation initiatives being rolled out by March AM, the Banca March Group's asset management business, through the Mediterranean Fund, an environmental impact fund focused on the oceans economy and water.
  • Meteorologists Roberto Brasero and Manuel Toharia took part in the production of the documentary.
  • March AM donates part of the management fees from the environmental impact Mediterranean Fund to marine ecosystem conservation projects by the foundations Save the Med and Oceana.

March AM, the Banca March Group's asset manager, continues to achieve the goals in the marine ecosystem conservation action plan laid out through the launch of the environmental impact Mediterranean Fund. The new March AM themed fund was launched at an event held at Valencia's Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències. At the same event, attendees were shown a documentary (see here) through which the Banca March Group hopes to raise awareness of the importance of protecting our seas and oceans, and specifically the Mediterranean Sea and Posidonia oceanica, one of its greatest riches.

The documentary was co-produced with Atresmedia, and features meteorologist Roberto Brasero and meteorologist, scientist and advisor to the Oceanogràfic de Valencia, Manuel Toharia. In a highly educational exchange, the two chat about the threats facing our seas and the importance of Posidonia as a regenerative factor. Specifically, they highlight the fact that one hectare of Posidonia, which is endemic to the Mediterranean, can produce five times more oxygen than a hectare of the Amazon rainforest. As well as highly interesting scientific data and an immersion offering a close-up view of Posidonia meadows, the documentary also details the contribution made by the Banca March Group to help with these conservations efforts, through the Mediterranean Fund.

Investing in high-potential themes

The Mediterranean Fund, which invests in global companies that are linked to the oceans economy and make responsible use of marine resources and water, has a clear focus on generating returns for its investors.

It invests in equities over a horizon of more than three years, honing in on two high-potential trends which are in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030: oceans as a source of wealth and water as a scarce, indispensable resource for life.

“It's time to give back what the sea has given us”

In line with the campaign's motto, “It's time to give back what the sea has given us", March AM donates 10% of the fund's management fee to environmental impact projects for the recovery and conservation of the marine environment.

To this end, it has signed agreements with the organisations Save the Med and Oceana, whose missions and initiatives are closely aligned with its goal of protecting marine ecosystems.

As well as the event in Valencia, Banca March also held launch events for the Mediterranean Fund in Palma de Mallorca and Madrid. It has also organised volunteering initiatives to clean up beaches in the Balearic and Canary Islands.
