Everyone has different sustainability preferences when it comes to investments. Advinans wants to help you make the right choice given your preferences and we have therefore divided the savings into two different approaches – save broadly or save sustainably – and secured the best investment funds in each category.

 

Save broadly

To save broadly means that Advinans, with no restrictions, puts together the best possible investment plan based on your savings targets. This means you get exposure to the full market and that it is the most cost-effective option.

 

Save sustainably

If you save sustainably you will be exposure to the full market excluding specific sectors as per below. The fees are somewhat higher if you save sustainably - but with sustainability growing strongly in the fund industry the fee gap is negligible. 


For sustainable funds Advinans follow the negative screening guidelines of United Nations’ Principles for Responsible Investment. The principles are based on negative screening criterias where certain sectors are excluded for the funds to invest in. In the table below you find the sectors fund companies can not invest in according to the UN Principles.
