Nordea Asset Management launches thematic strategy to address climate and social issues
Nordea Asset Management (NAM) launched its Global Climate and Social Impact strategy, adding another sustainability themed product to its ESG range.
NAM is pleased to announce the launch of its Nordea’s Global Climate and Social Impact strategy, a thematic global equity product managed by the successful ESG thematic boutique behind the well-known Nordea 1 - Global Climate and Environment Fund (GCLIMEF).
The product has been designed for investors looking for solutions that bring together both the social and environmental dimensions of sustainability and is classified Article 9 under SFDR.
The strategy is a global fundamental bottom-up solution built on a strong ESG research platform where impact analysis is fully integrated. It is managed by an investment team with an outstanding track record and substantial experience in investing in climate and social empowerment themes. Portfolio managers aim to deliver attractive returns by investing in businesses that provide meaningful solutions to address pressing social and environmental needs. They collaborate closely with NAM’s dedicated Responsible Investments team, one of the largest in the AM industry, to create value through engagement with the invested companies.
With the Nordea Global Climate and Social Impact strategy, investors can play an active role in the transition towards an inclusive green economy.
Thomas Sørensen, co-manager of Nordea’s Global Climate and Social Impact strategy, says: “The climate crisis is an issue demanding our attention, yet there is also a fundamental need to address the social issues facing society today. Companies that offer solutions to these problems represent a compelling proposition for investors. New consumers care not only about what the products are made of, but how they are made. That’s why we look for companies that marry purpose and profits.”
