Pareto Asset Management AS (PAM) works systematically with ethical considerations in the management of funds and discretionary mandates. PAM shall not make investments which constitute an unacceptable risk of investments contributing to unethical acts or omissions. We are pleased to announce that our global fund Pareto Global Corporate Bond has taken the next step towards a more sustainable tomorrow by becoming the first fixed income fund in Norway to receive the Nordic Swan Ecolabel.
“We are very proud to be the first fixed income fund in Norway to receive this certificate.”
- Pareto Global Corporate Bond (since its launch in 2015) has always utilized a systematic investment process. We exclude sectors exposed to higher risks, such as commodities, gambling, tobacco and weapons. We believe a negative screening combined with a positive screening process of sustainable companies and more defensive industries contribute to better long-term return for our customers, says Stefan Ericson, Head of Fixed Income at Pareto Asset Management.
- We are very proud to be the first fixed income fund in Norway to receive this certificate, ends Ericson.
Nordic Swan Ecolabel
The aim of Nordic Swan Ecolabelled funds is to use the power of capital and ownership to steer companies in a more sustainable direction.
- Investors around the Nordic region now also have the opportunity to invest in a Swan-labeled fixed income fund that meets tough demands on sustainability. Earlier it has been the most actively managed mutual funds that have fulfilled our requirements. It is both good and necessary that the flora now expand, says Per Sandell, head of Financial Services in Nordic Ecolabelling.
The Nordic Swan Ecolabel does not imply that all of the fund's companies are sustainable or without problems or challenges. The aim of our requirements is to make your investment in a Nordic Ecolabelled fund move markets, industries and companies in a more sustainable direction.
If you have any questions, please contact Stefan Ericson, Head of Fixed Income.
