AP2's strategy is based on a step-by-step approach to value generation: choice of strategic asset allocation, selection of index and active management. This approach is based on a set of principles, or Investment Beliefs. These describe the Fund's view of how capital markets function and the opportunities and potential they present for generating a return on investment. One of the beliefs states that value can be both protected and created by being a responsible asset owner and asset manager.
AP2's vision of providing 'world-class asset management' can only be achieved if sustainability is integrated into the management. This is because sustainability issues are important to social development and future economic development and thus also to the fund's capital returns.
AP2's climate ambition is to develop our portfolio in line with the two-degree target. This is achieved by integrating climate analysis into the investment process and by, based on the fund's mission, contributing to the transition into a two-degree society.
