Describe your approach to screening for internally managed active fixed income
Please see answers provided in previous sections.
Norms-based screening approach:
- Nordic Credit Partners has comissioned Sustainalytics to provide norms-based and product involvement research for the portfolio and potential investments two times a year.
- Based on mentioned on the above, Nordic Credit Partners evaulate companies against the UN Global Compact principles to base investment decisions on.
- In the event of business conduct issues, found either pre- or post investment, Nordic Credit Partners would evaluate available information to build an understanding of severeness and thereafter potentially contact the company for their view. Depending on understanding of issue, Nordic Credit Partners would choose to either refrain from investment, engage with the company to reach desireable results, or divest.
Negative screening approach - exclusion of the sectors/product involvement areas:
- Nordic Credit Partners refrains from investing in companies within the following sectors due to ethical beliefs and financial investment considerations: Oil & Gas, Tobacco, Alcohol, Weapons, Adult Entertainment.
