TKP Investments launches Multi-Manager European Equity Index SRI Fund

TKP Investments has launched a Socially Responsible Investment multi-manager European Equity fund for the Dutch pension fund market. The fund has grown since the launch in January to around € 475 million.

The TKPI MM European Equity Index SRI Fund aims to provide investors with a return close to the MSCI Europe SRI Index through investing in European equities that meet a pre-defined level of sustainability. In addition, the SRI Policy of TKP Investments is also applicable to the Fund.

The policy uses a range of criteria including: screening using the United Nations Global Compact Principles to assess whether companies conduct themselves in line with these principles; engagement where companies fail to meet the GCP criteria; and exclusion where a company is for example involved in controversial weapons or tobacco production.

The launch of the fund follows the successful launch of a global version, the TKPI MM World Equity Index SRI Fund, which has raised circa €1.2 billion in assets under management.

The fund will be managed by the TKP Investments multi-manager team in Groningen.

TKP Investments Gertjan Medendorp says: ‘A pension fund’s key objective is to provide a good pension. We believe a good pension is worth significantly more in a livable world. Fortunately, we are now seeing a growing number of pension funds in The Netherlands recognise this, which has led to an increase in those investing responsibly. As a result, in recent years this greater attention to environmental, social and governance factors, especially in Europe, has translated into outperformance of portfolios where ESG is being systematically integrated.’
