NN Investment Partners adopts the Equator Principles

April 2, 2019 Adoption News

The Hague, 02 April 2019

Today NN Investment Partners (NN IP) has become a signatory of the Equator Principles.

While the EPs have already played an important role in NN IP’s investment process in the past, their formal adoption also adds a reporting obligation. No funding will be granted to infrastructure and project finance investments that do not comply with the EPs.

Valentijn van Nieuwenhuijzen, CIO at NN Investment Partners: “We are very proud to adopt the Equator Principles, which are a logical addition to our Responsible Investing framework. We firmly believe that integrating these elements into our analysis and decision-making process can contribute to enhancing returns and mitigating risks. Financing the right projects enables us to generate attractive returns and offers diversification benefits for more traditional fixed income portfolios while working towards a more sustainable future. Think of low carbon mass transit, flood protection infrastructure or building schools.”

To date, 96 international financial institutions in 37 countries are signatories of the Equator Principles.
