Pareto Asset Management aims at contributing to sustainable development of markets and long-term value creation by investing in a responsible and ethical manner. Our guidelines for responsible investing are anchored in the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and the guidelines formed by the Norwegian Government Pension Fund, and ensure a responsible profile on all our funds.

In 2018, all eyes were on a turning point that, despite several warning signs, failed to appear.
Just as the last leg of a long trip tends to colour your impression of the entire journey, the last quarter of 2018 may have made you think that it was a most unusual year, portending perhaps the end of this long, profitable cycle. Read the complete annual review by our Chief Investment Officer Finn Øystein Bergh.
Pareto Asset Management works systematically with ethical considerations in the management of all its funds. In 2018 our global fund Pareto Global Corporate Bond became the first fixed income fund in Sweden and Norway to obtain a Nordic Ecolabel license for sustainability.
–We are very proud to be the first fixed income fund in Sweden to receive this certificate, says Stefan Ericson, Head of Fixed Income.
Pareto Asset Management shall exercise active ownership in the portfolio companies in order to promote responsible business operations. This means that we will use our ownership rights and influence in the companies to help move the companies in a positive direction in terms of social relations, environmental issues, sustainability and good corporate governance.
