Sustainable on emerging markets
An innovative fund that invests sustainably on emerging markets is run by AP1 in association with asset management company BlackRock. The fund is data driven.
It was created in 2018 at the request of AP1 and is called the BlackRock Emerging Markets Equity Impact Fund.
In the fund, investments are made considering measurable environmental and social effects, without detracting from financial returns or the need to follow particular indices. Several different ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) aspects are factors.
Information is structured, filtered and validated using BlackRock’s own process for data-driven information processing. This means that investment decisions can be based on more relevant sustainability data than the companies’ own sustainability reports, which often do not reveal the whole picture.
