Sustainability is a permanent feature of our investments

A natural aspect of the investment process

By analysing so-called ESG factors (environmental, social and governance) alongside the financial aspects, our portfolio managers achieve greater insight into the companies and countries in which they invest. Hence, sustainability is a natural feature of our investment processes and products. At Danske Invest, we call this ‘ESG Inside’.

Sustainability work adjusted to each individual fund 

Our portfolio managers analyse and work differently with sustainability in the investment process so that the work is adjusted to each individual fund – as investments have different characteristics and are affected differently by ESG factors. For example, there is a great difference in working with sustainability when investing in equities from emerging markets and when investing in Nordic corporate bonds. Portfolio managers therefore tailor the integration of ESG factors to the specific asset class and investment strategy in order to create the best possible return for investors.
