In September 2019 Nykredit bought 75% of Sparinvest shares. At year end, Sparinvest was a subsidiary of Nykredit, which is also a signatory to the PRI. Both companies have similar approaches to responsible investment, but as of year-end 2019 maintained separate RI policies. As this PRI report represents the activities of Sparinvest during the full year 2019, guided by its policies, this report treats Sparinvest as a separate entity. For the reporting year 2019 the Nykredit PRI report will only cover investments and activities by the Nykredit group as it was prior to the acquisition. For the subsequent reporting year (2020), the Nykredit report will incorporate investments and activities in both companies.
