Nordea Asset Management: Best ESG Team Europe 2021


The Nordea family of financial service providers dates back over 200 years, and famous fairy tale author Hans Christian Andersen was one of its early customers. Nordea Asset Management (NAM) remains true to its Nordic origins as one of the oldest sustainable investors having delivered responsible returns for over three decades.

Of NAM’s €274bn assets under management, around 64 percent is currently allocated to solutions like the ESG STARS Funds range, which seek to find tomorrow’s sustainable investments, and to other SFDR Article 8 and 9 products, including Nordea 1 – Global Social Empowerment Fund and Nordea 1 – Global Climate and Social Impact Fund.

Nordea Asset Management takes pride in its ESG leadership, industry-leading corporate-level Responsibility Investment policy, focused on achieving both sustainability and attractive returns through deep ESG analysis and a world-class engagement and voting program.

All of these efforts build on what rates as currently the European Asset Management industry’s strongest ESG team. Over the years, NAM’s Responsible Investments team, one of the largest and longest-standing teams in the business, has continued to grow and deepen its experience within all areas of ESG. Today, the team is a true leader in European ESG investing. The judging panel applauds NAM’s efforts which have taken sustainability from a fairy tale to a reality, and presents Nordea Asset Management with the 2021 award for Best ESG Team (Europe).
