Fact sheet as of 16 October, 2019

Past performance does not guarantee future performance. The value of investment funds and other financial instruments may rise as well as fall and there is no guarantee you will recover your original investment. Key investor information documents and prospectuses are available on

We make active investment decisions, based on analysis and selection, to invest predominantly in European companies or companies traded on European markets. We use an objective and disciplined investment process to identify what we regard as high quality companies that are favourably valued. Additionally, the market should have a positive attitude towards the company's shares. The fund employs both inclusion and exclusion of companies. The inclusion process focuses on identifying companies that contribute to a sustainable environmental development for example within carbon emission, water consumption and toxic emissions areas. Exclusion means the fund does not invest in, for example, companies that breach international norms. The fund follows specific exclusion criteria regarding companies whose business activities involve weapons, tobacco, alcohol, commercial gambling and pornography. Additionally, the fund does not invest in companies that extract coal, gas or oil.


The fund is managed by the Global Equities team with Evelina Stenvall and Christian Darenhill as the lead portfolio managers. The team, based in Stockholm, employs a systematic and disciplined investment process.
