The strategy has evolved over the years. Being a Norwegian company, Pareto Asset Management found that the Norwegian Government Pension Fund was a natural starting point for the incorporation of our RI/ESG strategy, which we have applied for more than 10 years.
The last few years we have had a more active approach to RI/ESG incorporation, where we also look at other sources of information as well as emerging trends and issues. For å fundamentally oriented active manager - also in fixed income - integration is part of the game.
As for the Nordic Ecolabeling, we have committed ourselves to a comprehensive and thorough ESG incorporation process for the fund for which we have gained approval. We are working to get a similiar kind of approval for another FI fund.
