  1. Unusually average

    In the tug of war between economic recovery and fears of runaway inflation, August balanced out pretty well.

  2. It’s beginning to look a lot like … Goldilocks?

    What’s been moving the markets this month? If you’re expecting an itemised list of events, indicators and forecasts, I have a disappointment coming. You won’t get it here and I would claim you don’t need it.

  3. Predictions of little financial value

    June was a good month for both stocks and corporate bonds, extending the remarkable upturn since the height of the pandemic panic of last year.

  4. Wireless and incalculable

    Estimating the value of a stock isn’t always particularly straightforward. Nordic Semiconductor is a good example.

  8. ESG in times of SFDR and EU taxonomy

    As a dedicated ESG analyst for our fixed income fund Pareto ESG Global Corporate Bond, Nawel Boukedroun works full time to fulfil the strict requirements of the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, the Nordics’ official ecolabel. We asked her how this past year has affected her job.

  9. Webinar: Pareto ESG Global Corporate Bond

    Thursday 27 May we hosted a webinar with the portfolio management team of our Swan-labelled fixed income fund, and Article 9 fund under the SFDR, Pareto ESG Global Corporate Bond.

  10. Misplaced panic

    Polaris is an unknown brand for most Norwegians. The Minnesota-based company produces quad bikes, snowmobiles, boats and motorcycles, mostly for the North American market. Good growth, high returns on equity and a strong balance sheet put it on the radar of the Pareto Global portfolio managers, who bought their first stocks in 2018.
