Nordea Asset Management wins the CFI’s award for best ESG investment process in Europe for the second consecutive year. According to the jury’s statement Nordea has consistently been at the forefront of responsible investing, using ESG as a means to mitigate risk and maximise opportunity.

“Nordea Asset Management has developed a winning investment formula that incorporates the full spectrum of environmental, social and governance (ESG) parameters in all actively managed fund products,” London-based magazine Capital Finance International said.

As one of the first large banks in the Nordics to sign the UN Principles for Responsible Investment, Nordea is committed to adopting the ESG perspective in all analyses and to being an active owner. Last year Nordea was involved in dialogues with over 150 companies. According to the CFI judging panel’s statement, Nordea Asset Management has gained a “formidable reputation for its shareholder activism”. 

“We feel honoured and proud for having received this award for two consecutive years. It confirms that we are on the right path when we place ESG considerations at the core of our investment processes,” said Sasja Beslik, Head of Responsible Investments at Nordea.

The Capital Finance International magazine covers economics, finance and industry. This is the second time that CFI awards a prize for best ESG process, having previously focused primarily on corporate governance issues. The winner is selected by a special CFI jury, based on nominated candidates. 

Nordea Asset Management is part of Nordea Bank AB, the largest financial services group in the Nordic region serving about 11 million customers.
