New fund categories
One of the goals of the EU’s sustainable finance regulations is to ensure better transparency and availability of ESG data on investment products and easier comparison between products. That’s why our funds are from now on grouped into three categories, depending on the fund’s sustainability goals Article 9, Article 8 or Article 6. Promoting the responsibility of our funds is important to us.
|Identify from||Fund category||Description|
|Article 9, sustainable investment products||Funds that aim at sustainable investment. They invest in companies that have a positive impact on the environment and/or society and human wellbeing.|
|Article 8, investment products that promote ESG features||Funds, that promote features related to the environment or society by excluding companies that have business which is harmful to the environment and society. Companies that take into consideration matters related to the environment, social sustainability and good governance better than their peers are selected for and are the focus of the funds.|
|Article 6, other investment products||Funds that acknowledge sustainability risks, but do not specifically promote or pursue matters related to the environment or society.|
We will perform the ESG analysis on most of our funds by using our own ESG analysis model.
Finland’s first global impact fund
Impact investing means making investments that seek returns and measurable positive impacts on the environment and society. While companies’ growth opportunities and long-term business are increasingly threatened by climate change and tensions in society, addressing these new challenges offers good return potential for investors.
OP Finnfund Global Impact I fund is a step towards more sustainable investing. This first global impact fund in Finland invests in the emerging market, in sustainable companies whose services directly address global challenges, such as climate change, food security and gender equality.
