Investment Policy

Evli Equity Factor Europe invests its assets in a diversified manner in the equities of major European companies. The fund focuses on four academically determined factors: value, low risk, momentum and quality.

The fund’s investment style is active. The fund is not subject to restrictions concerning business area or country within its geographical investment area.

Responsibility

ESG factors are integrated into the investment decisions of the fund, and the fund uses the so-called best in class approach, that is, it selects companies with a higher ESG score. In addition to Evli’s general exclusion practices, the fund excludes companies with significant business in the following sectors: alcohol, weapons, tobacco, mining of thermal coal, gambling or adult entertainment. The fund also excludes companies with the lowest responsibility rating and companies that have committed very severe confirmed norm violations according to the analyses of MSCI ESG Research and ISS ESG. The fund’s investments are monitored for violations of the Climate Change Principles, and the companies the fund invests in are engaged with or excluded if violations are detected. The fund's ESG indicators are reported in a fund-specific ESG report, which is updated four times a year.
