For the first time, we reported on dialogue with Nordic companies in Folketrygdfondet's ownership report. The aim is to present Folketrygdfondet’s active ownership in the Nordic region. Although our ownership interest is lower in the Nordics than in Norway, we have found that Nordic companies place a high priority on engaging in dialogue with us.
In 2019, Folketrygdfondet held 153 dialogue meetings with a total of 52 companies listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange, in addition to 78 meetings with 60 companies listed in Denmark, Sweden and Finland. The topics covered at these meetings included climate, strategy, capital structure and financial targets[m1] . The 2019 climate risk dialogue encompassed companies in the transport, real estate and building and construction sectors. Anti-money laundering measures were an important topic in discussions with the banking sector, driven particularly by revelations linked to the activities of Nordic banks in the Baltics.
