One of the principles regarding Anker’s investment policy is that investments are made in a socially responsible and sustainable manner. Anker conforms to the so-called look-through principle and to the Sustainable Investing Code of the Dutch Association of Insurers. In the course of 2015 the external asset manager has checked the asset allocation within the investment portfolio against this code. Where necessary, a reallocation of the funds invested has taken place. This way the Sustainable Investing Code is implemented in the best possible way.
Given the diversity and complexity of the investment portfolio, it may happen occasionally that an underlying variant is not in keeping with the Sustainable Investing Code. Both Anker and the external asset manager will ensure that this situation will be avoided or will be put right upon discovery.
