Sustainability is a key element in investment operations and their processes. eQ has no separate part for responsible investment, as ESG is part of all investment operations. In practice this means that sustainability matters are taken into consideration in the selection and portfolio management of the investments as well as in reporting in all asset classes. eQ’s Director for Responsible Investment is responsible for this work. Each investment team also has a dedicated person who has deeper knowledge of responsible investments. In addition to these persons, we believe that it is of utmost importance that all our portfolio managers and analysts understand, recognise and take into account the potential sustainability risks and opportunities pertaining to investments. This is something that cannot be outsourced.
