A conflict of interest may sometimes arise in connection with a responsible investment matter.
Part of the ethics committee's work is to monitor the compliance of our guidelines for social responsible investments. This is done through the preparation of a biannual report, highlighting any issues discovered among the companies in which we are invested on behalf of funds and clients.
Sometimes the companies put under scrutiny or exclusion by the ethics committee may also be clients of Pareto Asset Management. Based on this a conflict of interest may arise. Based on the composition of the committee, we have reduced the risk of materialised conflicts of interests to a minimum.
