Fixed Income with added ESG
Environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors have over the last decade gained increasing attention when investing in companies or countries, thereby broadening the traditional objective of gained a financial return on the investment towards a more holistic view taking the long term sustainability of the investment into consideration.
Jyske Capital is applying ESG factors as an integral element in the investment process as part of any company due diligence, as we are convinced that a responsible and sustainable business model is important for all companies in the long run. In addition, we have in recent years provided a growing number of our clients with flexible tailor-made investment solutions within responsible investment.
We have a pro-active approach to social responsible investments, and has signed the United Nations Principle for Responsible Investing (UNPRI), the UN Global Compact and complies with the Ottawa Treaty and The Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM). As part of this approach, Jyske Capital now offers an investment grade corporate bonds strategy with a focus on sustainability. The strategy is managed by our experienced portfolio managers and utilizes the same investment process as the Investment Grade Corporate Bonds strategy, but excludes companies with activities within tobacco, weapons, alcohol, adult entertainment, gambling and fossil fuels.
