Sustainable investment strategies are becoming more and more mainstream. Asset managers representing nearly 70 trillion USD* have committed to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), and investors are increasingly “walking the talk” with over one quarter of all assets under management in key global markets** invested sustainably. Sustainability is an essential factor in companies’ long term financial performance, and it is therefore at the core of everything we do at Storebrand, culturally within our organisation and a central part of our offering to every client. Storebrand was the first Norwegian company to establish a sustainable investment department in 1995 and is a founding member of PRI. All of our investment products must meet the Storebrand Standard for sustainable investing. Every company whose equity or debt we invest in is assessed for its sustainability credentials and assigned a sustainability rating, incorporating analysis of how that investment will assist in meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Over dinner, Mattew Smith, Head of Sustainable Investments at Storebrand will discuss their experience and approach to sustainable investing, how and why they rate companies on their alignment with the financially relevant Sustainable Development Goals, and how this rating is systematically integrated into the investment process by their portfolio managers.This dinner is available exclusively for pension fund decision makers and their advisors and is eligible for CPD accreditation.
