Nordea eneste danske på top 75 over bedste ansvarlige asset managers

    ShareAction har offentliggjort sin rapport over verdens største kapitalforvaltere og hvordan de performer på ansvarlige investeringer. Eneste danske islæt er Nordea, der placerer sig på en flot 12. plads.  I toppen af listen finder man Robeco, BNP Paribas Asset Management, Legal & General Investment Management og APG Asset Management.

    Rapporten viser, at 51 procent af kapitalforvalterne har en meget begrænset tilgang til styring af ESG-risici og -påvirkninger. “Trods det faktum, at kapitalforvaltere ofte fremme deres ESG-legitimationsoplysninger, er det klart, at industrien som helhed har en lang vej at gå hen imod mainstreaming ansvarlige investeringer, ” skriver ShareAction blandt andet.

    Five asset managers – Robeco, BNP Paribas Asset Management, Legal & General Investment Management, APG, and Aviva – rated A in the 2020 survey. However, with no manager demonstrating best practice across its entire approach, no AA or AAA ratings were awarded

    A clear regional split can be seen in this year’s survey, with European asset managers leading the way on responsible investment. The US and Asia Pacific, meanwhile, lag behind. This is perhaps unsurprising given the strong regulatory signals on sustainable finance at the EU level – such as the EU’s Sustainable Finance Agenda – and the country level – for example Article 173 of the French Energy Transition Law and the Dutch Climate Agreement.

    In stark comparison, with strong policy signals from both the Trump administration and the US Securities Exchange Commission that climate change is not a priority, it is also unsurprising that US asset managers are far less progressive on ESG issues.
