Nordea launches sustainable real assets fund

Portfolio manager Jeremy Anagos says real assets form the 'backbone of every economy'

Nordea Asset Management has launched a sustainable real assets fund aiming to invest in sustainable real estate.

The Nordea 1 – Global Sustainable Listed Real Assets Fund is managed by BCRE Investment Management with support from Nordea’s responsible investment team led by portfolio manager Jeremy Anagnos.

Real assets form the backbone of every economy, enabling economic and social development,” Anagnos said.

“These companies generate positive social, environmental and economic impacts – such as contributing to greenhouse gas emissions reduction, revitalising disenfranchised areas and improving access to services.

“Powered by ongoing governmental initiatives, supportive investors, and aspirational underlying tenants and stakeholders, we see tremendous near and long-term tailwinds for sustainability focused real assets.”
