About the Leaders Universe

As a leading ‘search platform’ for institutional asset owners and from our close partnership with Pensions & Investments, Global Fund Search has unique access and insight into the work and preferences of institutional selection teams around the globe. The knowledge we accumulate ultimately makes us able to systematically identify the leading asset managers, e.g. within sustainable investing.

Sustainable investing is one of the major themes that we see among our investor-clients today, and it is a theme that is likely to play an important role in institutional investing for many years to come. Therefore, we dedicate this section of our platform to the leading asset managers and products that we, and our investor-network, see in this space.

Sustainable Fixed Income Leaders

ESG Handbook

GFS Handbook
Nordsip

Launched in collaboration with nordsip

ESG leadership is a status that most institutional asset managers are looking to attain; however, it can be difficult for investors to see through the marketing (and potential greenwashing) that is also a part of the game when significant amounts of assets flow towards a specific investment theme.


Therefore, the ESG Leaders program and the ESG Handbook attempt to identify the ESG leaders and thereby support institutional selection teams in their (re)search for external asset managers.

ESG philosophy

Responsible Investing (RI) lies at the heart of NN IP’s investment beliefs. It is key to enhancing risk-adjusted returns while contributing to society as a whole. ESG factors are integrated into the investment process for all of our fixed-income strategies enabling us to consider factors which have a significant impact on long-term performance. Material ESG risks and opportunities are integrated into the fundamental analyses of companies and sectors, as well as into portfolio construction. Our materiality framework identifies these factors for each sector and the results of this analysis are added to the company scorecards. ESG considerations are very relevant for our relative value discussions.

Furthermore, we have been managing dedicated sustainable credit portfolios for well over a decade. These portfolios apply positive selection criteria and a stricter view on controversies in their investment approach. They have shown consistent outperformance throughout market cycles, outperforming its traditional counterparts as the impact of the coronavirus hit markets.

Our impact range includes the Green Bond strategy which invests in projects making a measurable positive contribution to the UN SDGs, particularly climate change mitigation and adaptation. This strategy is a market leader both from a volume and performance perspective, with a diversified offering including short-duration, corporate bond and blended variants.

Engagement forms an important part of our responsible investing approach. This includes controversy and thematic engagement led by the centralized RI team, as well as investment dialogues carried out by portfolio managers and analysts.
