Nordea Asset Management: ESG Award Winner in Europe, 2014

According to the Judging Panel, ‘Nordea well understands the benefits that accrue to investors when managers consider environmental, social and corporate governance factors in the asset selection process.

This company has been working consistently over the years to integrate ESG assessment fully into its investment decision making.

Nordea has shown clear focus and a strong determination to exclude investments that violate their ESG principles and it is clear to us that their products are all the better for this rigorous examination.

Board composition, audit policy and compliance procedures reflect good corporate governance policy and practice at Nordea.

Risk management here is exemplary and our winner does all possible to conduct business as profitably as possible but with integrity. We are delighted to name Nordea as winner of the award for Best ESG Investment Process, Europe.’
