On 16 April 2024, H&K Responsible Investment Brand Index (RIBI™) has rated Nordea Asset Management (NAM) Fourth Best Asset Manager in the World based on combined scores for RI commitment and ESG brand.

The 2024 RIBI looked at over 600 asset managers across the globe to identify leaders who “act as responsible investors and commit to sustainable development to the extent that they put it at the very heart of who they are in their brand.”

NAM was ranked 4th Best Asset Manager in the World based on a combination of two ratings: RI Brand and RI Commitment

The RI Commitment rating, which focuses on hard factors (eg level and quality of Listed Equity voting), gave NAM the Avant-Gardist distinction—reached by only 20% of evaluated asset managers.

The RIBI remains the only index evaluating the asset management industry on its ability to translate commitment to sustainable development into each asset manager’s core brand, allowing for unique insights as it evaluates actual commitment against follow-through in brand architecture.

Eric Pedersen, Head of Responsible Investments at Nordea Asset Management:

“We are very happy to be ranked among the global leaders – and the highest in the Nordic region – for our Responsible Investment approach. We are immensely proud of our long history of delivering attractive long-term returns, while aiming for a positive impact on society and the planet. Still, we do not rest on our reputation. Rather, we remain relentlessly committed to the development of our Climate franchise, including our market-leading bespoke solutions for portfolio decarbonization and, more broadly, what is already today one of the most complete ESG product ranges on the market.”
