Measures related to the coronavirus

Pareto Asset Management has implemented a number of measures to ensure uninterrupted operation and prevent the spread of the coronavirus, Covid-19. The measures were introduced with immediate effect from Thursday 12 March, and will apply until the authorities come up with new guidelines.

We emphasise that our daily operations, with management, valuation and settlement, continue as before.

A strong year for our Nordic high yield fund

December ended a very strong year for Pareto Nordic Corporate Bond, with positive returns for 12 consecutive months.

Fund performance throughout the year was characterised by low volatility combined with solid returns in the Nordic market, in both absolute and relative terms. The fund has experienced strong growth in total assets, almost tripling during the year.

To manage a Swan-labeled fund

The task of integrating sustainability and identifying corporate governance issues is conducted through a fundamental ESG analysis prior to investments.

Here we share a few examples that provide an idea of the challenges we meet in implementing this analysis.

Responsible Investment

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.
