We are committed to
 

  • sustainable business,

    We seek to invest in firms in a way that supports their sustainable development. Our private equity investment in Nord Timber Group has been an example of our commitment to environmental sustainability: the company's forest operations were improved in line with best Scandinavian practice. It received an environmental certification under FSC (www.fsc.org).

    We have signed the CFA Institute’s Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct. We are also committed to Transparency International's Business Principles for Countering Bribery, and support Transparency International.
