Investment Management at Topdanmark

Topdanmark aims to attain the biggest possible return on investments in relation to risk.

Topdanmark aims to attain the biggest possible return on investments in relation to risk, but also to ensure that value creation is responsible and not in violation of the internationally recognized standards and principles as well as conventions adopted by Denmark. To ensure this, Topdanmark has joined the UN Global Compact, which consists of ten principles concerning human rights, workers’ rights, the environment, and corruption. These principles are an integrated part of Topdanmark’s Responsible Investment Policy. In addition to the Responsible Investment Policy, Topdanmark has a Policy for Active Ownership. The board of Topdanmark Asset Management has overall responsibility for the policies, while Topdanmark Asset Management is responsible for implementing them and continually monitoring and ensuring that investments follow the principles set by the policies. Topdanmark Asset Management invests primarily in listed shares. New investments are generally not made in companies that violate the ten principles of the UN Global Compact.

As a result of its Policy for Active Ownership, Topdanmark has decided to report on its actions as an active owner. Topdanmark reports the extent to which it has participated in the companies’ General Meetings, and the extent to which Topdanmark has voted. The reporting scope includes Danish companies of which Topdanmark controls more than 2 per cent of the votes or the share capital, and in which Topdanmark is not represented on the board of directors.

Further information on Topdanmark’s responsible investment approach, as well as the Responsible Investment Policy and Policy for Active Ownership, is available in Topdanmark's website.
