Ensuring the money that employees and their employers put aside each month for their pension earns the best possible return at an acceptable risk. That is the goal of the investment policy we implement on behalf of our clients.
As a long-term investor, it is important to us that companies have good environmental and personnel policies and they are well governed. Continuous attention to these environment, social and governance (ESG) factors gives us better insight into opportunities and risks, and contributes to good long-term returns.
Responsible investing is becoming increasingly important to our clients. Their participants and pensioners attach growing value to the knowledge that their money is invested responsibly. Civil society organizations challenge our clients on this issue with greater frequency.
As a responsible investor, we are a partner for our clients. A partner that not only manages assets, but also provides support in further developing the responsible investment policy and helps in communicating about it. You can read about what steps we took in 2014 in this report.
