For sustainable investment fund recommendations, Nordea Node relies on the UN principles for responsible Investment. The framework is based on so-called exclusion whereby fund management companies may not invest in specific sectors. In the table below, we have compiled the sectors which are excluded by the fund management companies based on the UN guidelines. Category Activity Rule E Extraction of oil, coal, and gas Fund excludes companies involved in the extraction of oil, coal, and gas E Fossil fuel electricity producers Fund excludes companies that produce electricity based on fossil fuels S Weapons Fund excludes companies with ties to nuclear weapons, cluster bombs, landmines, chemical and biological weapons S Firearms Fund excludes companies deriving 5% or more revenue from firearms S Tobacco Fund excludes companies classified as tobacco companies or deriving 5% or more revenue from tobacco products S Alcohol Fund excludes companies deriving 5% or more revenue from alcohol S Gambling Fund excludes companies deriving 5% or more revenue from gambling S Pornography Fund excludes companies deriving 5% or more revenue from pornography G International standards and conventions Fund excludes companies that violate international standards and conventions
For some pension accounts and salary exchange accounts, a forecast for future returns is simulated in a graph. The graph is intended to give you an indication of how the account's future development will be. It is, however, important to point out that it is just an indication and not a guarantee of future returns. Nordea Node’s simulation is based on established statistical models and takes the following into account: Each asset's historical risk/volatility (if an individual asset has only been in existence for a short time, it will be removed from the simulation so as not to be misleading) Each asset’s historical movement in relation to various broad market indices The historical development of several broad market indices On the basis of the above, a risk and expected return is calculated for each asset. Everything is then put together and the investment fund portfolio's various expected outcomes are presented to you in a graph. The middle line represents the expected return. The upper and bottom lines represent a range within which 80% of all outcomes should end up. In other words, there is a probability of 90% that you should get a higher amount than the bottom line – according to the simulation.
A person in a politically exposed position, so called PEP, is a person who has or has had an important public function in a state or in an international organization. Nordea Node is obliged to ask if you are a person in a politically exposed position or if anyone in your vicinity is such a person. A person in your vicinity refers to a family member or known employee in accordance with the Act (2017:630) on measures against money laundering and terrorist financing.
