    NORDSIP INSIGHTS - LISTED IMPACT ROUND TABLE

    For many risk averse institutional asset owners, Emerging Markets (EM) investing can seem like a bit of a gamble at the best of times. The attraction of high growth-driven returns can be overshadowed by the corresponding greater political risks and inconsistent access to key market information.

Nevertheless, with the right expertise in place, EM investing can be very rewarding, both from a returns standpoint and in terms of positive sustainability outcomes.

    With this in mind, we travelled to Copenhagen to gather the thoughts of three large Danish asset owners along with two specialist asset managers representing the equity and fixed income perspectives.
