After the financial crisis, investment returns are more closely linked to the ability to protect value, and there is greater awareness of how ESG factors can manifest themselves into material risks that undermine creditworthiness. We want to steer our fixed income investments towards companies that tackle their ESG issues seriously. We therefore have integrated ESG considerations at issuer level för our bond portfolio.
In order to fulfill AMF policy comittments we also include our bonds in our biannual norms based screening and as of 2018, we also include a climate realted screen.
AMF invests in several themed bonds, such as green bonds.
