Words will not stop climate change, but investing in climate-smart projects will. Now that we can showcase good results over time the barrier to green investments is further lowered.
Today, SPP Green Bond Fund was awarded five stars by Morningstar.
– Now that we have a three year history and can showcase good results over time the barrier to green investments is further lowered. The fund is also structured as a traditional bond fund to easily fit traditional investment portfolios – leaving investors with few arguments left to not invest in green bonds, says Helena Lindahl, Portfolio manager SPP Green Bond Fund.
Available to all
SPP Green Bond Fund is available to all, both institutional investors and retail investors, which was one of the main reasons for launching the fund three years ago.
– With this fund, we have opened up the green bond market to both institutional investors and private individuals, enabling them to make a strong sustainability statement and getting good returns.
Green bonds grow rapidly
Since the World Bank released the first green bond in 2008, a total of $ 300 billion has been issued in Green Bonds globally.
– The Green Bonds market is growing quickly but needs to grow even faster. The proportion needs significant scaling if we are to meet the global goals and to ensure long-term returns. Words will not stop climate change, but investing in climate-smart projects will, Lindahl concludes.
SPP Green Bond Fund is an actively managed interest fund that is fully invested in green bonds, ie in companies and projects that have a clear positive impact on the environment and on society. The investments vary from renewable energy, waste management to water treatment and drinking water supply.
