Offering Specialised SRI Funds
Our asset manager, NN Investment Partners, is meeting the growing demand for products that generate good financial returns and are good for society and the environment through specialised funds and mandates. Assets under management in these sustainable equity and fixed income products have grown to EUR 4.1 billion by year-end 2014.
- NN Investment Partners’ flagship Luxembourg and Dutch domiciled ING Sustainable Equity Funds have been offered since 2000. They make use of both best-in-class and exclusionary criteria. In 2013, we launched the ING Europe Sustainable Equity fund, which is based on a successful strategy that we have managed for an institutional client since 2005.
- Our flagship Euro Credit Sustainable fund started in December 2011. It makes use of exclusionary filters and excludes investments in tobacco manufacturers. It is an investment-grade, non-financial focused corporate credit strategy, benchmarked against the Barclays Euro Aggregate Corporate Ex Financials index. In October 2014, we also launched the Euro Credit Sustainable (Incl Financials) fund, which uses the regular Barclays Euro Aggregate Corporate index as a benchmark.
In addition, we offer clients the opportunity to set up mandates according to their specific preferences with respect to ESG criteria. More information on NN Investment Partners' specialised SRI products and services can be found in the 'responsible investing' section on www.nnip.com.
