SKAGEN AS is an independent Norwegian-based asset management company with a long and successful history in managing equity and fixed income funds for both domestic and international clients. SKAGEN's sole goal is to become the world's best fund manager in terms of risk adjusted returns, communication and service for our clients. An integral part of our investment analysis is evaluating the sustainability of potential and current investments. This is done because we believe that investing responsibly is essential in order to achieve the best possible risk-adjusted returns for the unit holders. Sustainability and sound corporate governance give companies competitive advantages and supports their value creation contributing to maximising returns.

SKAGEN strives to gain an in-depth understanding of the relevant ESG issues applicable to our investments and to identify these issues before they escalate into events that may potentially decrease the value of the funds' investments. The objective is to integrate ESG issues into the investment decision-making as they have the potential to affect the long-term value of the investment.
