The basis for NN IP's responsible investment approach is NN Group's Responsible Investment Framework policy. Following this policyNN IP incorporates the following in its Fixed Income approach:
NN IP applies the restricted list of NN Group. This includes Countries: Sovereign issuers involved in severe and systematic violations of Human Rights, against which arms embargoes have been issued by the UN Security Council
Based on NN’s exclusion list, NN IP also does not invest in controversial weapons, arms trade entities that are subject to embargoes and tobacco production, as well as oil sands involved companies.
We use ESG integration because we strongly believe the incorporation of ESG factors can enhance the risk-return profile of our investments.
For clients who want to take Responsible Investments a step further, we offer specialized Sustainable and Impact funds and tailor-made solutions.
In the Green Bond fund and the collaboration with FMO, the SDG's also play a role in determining the investment universe
