Denmark’s Nykredit picks MSCI for ESG research and ratings
Nykredit, one of Denmark’s biggest financial services providers, has picked MSCI ESG Research to provide environmental, social and governance (ESG) research, ratings and screening tools.
Nykredit will use the full suite of MSCI EST Researche’s products, including MSCI ESG IVA, Impact Monitor and Business Involvement Screening Research. These will be used to perform screenings of both internally and externally managed portfolios, as well as supporting active ownership processes.
Nykredit is a signatory to the UN Principles of Responsible Investment, and therefore looks to build ESG factors into its investment process.
Lars Bo Bertram, CEO of Nykredit Asset Management, said: “We chose MSCI ESG Research as our ESG-research partner because their products and services can help us to reach our ambitions for sustainable investments.”
