LUXEMBOURG, LU — Nordea Asset Management (NAM) is honoured to receive recognition from the Belgian Central Labelling Agency in the form of a “Towards Sustainability” label for its two European Fixed Income Stars Strategies.
The Central Labelling Agency (CLA) of the Belgian SRI label has announced its decision to award Nordea’s European High Yield Stars Bond Strategy and European Corporate Stars Bond Strategy the “Towards Sustainability” label. “We are excited about the growing appreciation of sustainable investments in the Belgian market and see the Towards Sustainability label as a further endorsement of Nordea’s longstanding work in this area,” said Thierry Muller, Head of NAM’s Western Europe distribution. “We are looking forward to continue working with our distribution partners to create value for the Belgian investors.”
Nordea’s European Fixed Income Stars Strategies are part of Nordea’s expansion into Fixed Income ESG solutions. Eric Pedersen, Head of Responsible Investments at NAM, explains: “ESG risks affect not only equities but also fixed income instruments. Full integration of ESG factors is a key part of our investment process designed to beat the benchmark and deliver long-term sustainable returns by offering a materially improved ESG profile compared to the general market.”*
With the two newly labelled strategies, NAM’s family of Towards Sustainability labelled products now includes not only 5 ESG-enhanced equity solutions but also 3 fixed income strategies. These comprise Nordea’s Emerging Stars Equity Strategy, Global Stars Equity Strategy, European Stars Equity Strategy, North American Equity Strategy and Global Climate and Environment Strategy, Emerging Stars Bond Strategy, European Corporate Stars Bond Strategy and European High Yield Stars Bond Strategy.
The Towards Sustainability Initiative aspires to increase the quality of socially responsible and sustainable financial products, and to reassure potential investors that labelled financial products are managed in keeping with the highest sustainability standards. Independent supervision by the CLA protects the integrity of the quality standard and the label. For more information on the “Towards Sustainability” label, visit www.towardssustainability.be
