$120-billion Danish investor has big plans for sustainability (The Star)


One of Europe’s biggest pension funds is expecting double-digit returns on a new Danish investment vehicle that’s based on the United Nation’s sustainable development goals.

ATP, which has about $120 billion (U.S.) in assets under management and is based north of Copenhagen, predicts it will make 10-12 per cent with its bet on the Danish SDG Investment Fund, which was launched on Thursday. Risks will be limited because of the government’s involvement, according to ATP’s chief executive officer, Christian Hyldahl.
