13.5 CC. Indicate who uses this analysis.

13.6 CC. Indicate whether your organisation has evaluated the potential impact of climate-related risks, beyond the investment time horizon, on its investment strategy.


We are long term investors and the holding period for a large part of the unit-holders (share holders) in our funds is very long, tens of years. The long term approach reached beyond the typical holding period of any single investment in the portfolio. Therefore it is natural for us to aim to understand the long term trends affecting the strategies we manage. Some climate-related impacts on a portfolio has already started to materialize while others will be seen in practice within 5, 10 or 15 years time. We need to understand them now in order to make the best possible decisions today.
