Presenting this year's summer interns

Proud to present this year's summer interns!
This week, Torjus Wegge, Bjarne Aarsland, Agnes Ribe, Julie Bø, Elise Hvammen and Hans Christian Thagaard have joined forces with our investment teams here in Oslo, and will be working with various projects including ESG, valuations and financial analysis for the next two months. Happy to have you on board :)

May was certainly pleasant in the stock market. The S&P 500 rose by a full 5.0%, on renewed hopes of lower US inflation paving the way for earlier rate cuts. The MSCI World Index rose by 4.1% in local currency, reflecting a somewhat more restrained exuberance in other markets. Total return year to date, at 11.1%, is nevertheless in double-digit territory after just five months.

In our line of business, we have been busy adapting to new sustainability legislation, such as the EU Taxonomy and the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR). You may have seen a line or two about that in these responsible investment reports.

 Henceforth, however, the burden of reporting will fall on our portfolio companies. There is a wealth of new legislation soon to enter into force, requiring substantially more reporting efforts. Learn more in our latest report on responsible investing, no. 2-2023.
