A responsible approach to investments constitute an integral part of the investment decision-making process at PriorNilsson. The portfolio managers are treating company, sector and country ESG data in the financial analysis in the same way as and alongside other publically available data on the firm. This ESG data is sourced from the media, external reports, annual reports, CSR reports, equity research reports or any publically accessible information source.
Practically, ESG factors are integrated into the investment decision-making process by e.g., evaluating the risks and opportunities of the investment based on trends. This could be business risk associated with the shift from fossil fuels. Such trends might lead to new legislation that affects a company’s future earnings, need for new investments and re-structuring costs.
