Invest in the curbing of climate change

OP-Climate invests in companies playing a key role in preventing climate change

Preventing climate change is a lucrative business to many companies. OP-Climate invests in companies whose products and services relating to climate change account for a significant part of their business. The companies selected may, for example, develop or supply energy-saving technologies, renewable energy sources or solutions for water and waste management or recycling.

The companies included in OP-Climate are in a good position and benefit from the fight against climate change, as they develop products and services for curbing climate change. These companies’ demand will grow in the future, when regulation for greenhouse gas emissions tightens and governments set carbon neutral emission goals to prevent climate change.

Read the portfolio manager's review on the fund's Finnish pages.

OP-Climate is an equity fund which invests its assets broadly in the global stock market. Investments may be made in both developed and emerging equity markets, but the investments are typically somewhat tilted towards Europe and the United States.

In the Fund’s investment activities, the principles of sustainable development are taken into account with a particular emphasis on environmental issues. The fund’s assets are primarily invested in sectors where climate change and preparation for it are expected to have the largest positive impact. The fund’s portfolio companies are typically businesswise positioned for combating global warming, and their business is related to for example energy efficiency and technology, recycling, water and waste management and related infrastructure.

The fund's investments are primarily made through direct equity investments. The fund may use derivatives instruments in its investment activities to hedge against market fluctuations, to replace direct investments and to otherwise promote efficient portfolio management.

The fund’s assets are diversified in the shares of many companies. Typically the fund invests its assets in the shares of about 50-80 companies, but this number may vary reflecting the views taken by the portfolio manager.

The Fund’s equity exposure may vary so that a minimum of 75% and a maximum of 100% of the Fund’s NAV is invested in the equity markets. Typically the equity weight ranges between 90–100 %.

The Fund's benchmark is the MSCI World Climate Paris Aligned Net. With active investing, the Fund seeks to outperform its benchmark index in the long term. The Fund mainly takes notable active risk and it may differ significantly from the composition, weights and risk level of the benchmark index.
