Investment is a major activity within AG Insurance. It is at the same time a major source of income and a major source of risk. It is therefore essential that investments are managed taking into account policyholders’ and shareholders’ requirements while fully taking into account AG Insurance’s risk appetite. Investments are made with the judgement and care which persons of prudence, discretion and intelligence exercise in the management of their own affairs under circumstances then prevailing.
AG Insurance applies a 2-pillar approach to Socially Responsible Investments (SRI):
- Exclusion of controversial activities
- Integration of ESG factors in investment decisions
The SRI internal guidelines have the ambition to apply to the full scope of the asset universe available to CIO, including equities, bonds, loans and infrastructure, and applies to all assets managed by CIO or external parties appointed by CIO on the general account, segregated accounts and unit-linked investment funds.
Since 2018, AG Insurance has aligned its corporate strategy with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Out of the 17 goals, we have selected 10 where we believe we can have an impact via our activities, services and products, and thereby contribute to reaching these long-term objectives.
