Responsible investment decisions

Ymer SC AB considers sustainability risks and the principal adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors in the investment decisions regarding the funds that Ymer manages. The work with taking responsible investment decisions is based on the methods “include” and “exclude”, considering each respective fund’s investment strategy, and is through this promoting environmental and social aspects in the fund management process. Additional information about the methods used is further described in each fund's Information Brochure.

A sustainability risk means “an environmental, social or governance event or condition that, if it occurs, could cause an actual or potential material negative impact on the value of the investment”.

Sustainability factors mean environmental, social, and employee matters, respect for human rights, anti‐corruption, and anti‐bribery matters.
