Cardano mainly manages matching portfolios for our pension fund clients. The main objective is to do this as safely as possible with high-quality fixed income. In addition, this is done in house on a "passive unless" basis i.e. bonds are selected that most closely reflect the liability benchmark unless there is a reason to deviate for example for liquidity or pricing purposes. A large part of the investments is via Euro, UK and US government bonds. We acknowledges the impact that ESG factors have on investment outcomes in LDI.
