Investing sustainably is essential in order to achieve the best possible risk-adjusted returns for our clients. Our sustainability strategy is built upon three main pillars:

  1. We exclude companies that breach international norms or human rights. We also exclude companies that derive more than 5 percent of revenue from gambling, adult entertainment, tobacco and recreational cannabis, more than 25 percent of revenue from coal and more than 20 percent of revenue from oil sands.
  2. Sustainability is an integrated part of the investment process. We reward companies that provide sustainable solutions.
  3. Through direct dialogue with companies and voting at general meetings, we can positively influence companies behaviour over the long term.

Historical returns are no guarantee for future returns. Future returns will depend, inter alia, on market developments, the fund manager's skill, the fund's risk profile and management fees. The return may become negative as a result of negative price developments.
