DNB Asset Management – a short introduction


We are part of DNB, a bank that traces its roots back to 1822 when it was founded as Christiania Savings Bank. Today, DNB is Norway’s largest and most trusted bank, and one of the leading banks in Scandinavia. It is a conservative and stable organization, having reported solid profits and modest write-offs throughout the financial crisis.
The investment management is built around specialized teams with a high degree of autonomy and accountability. It is a structure designed to make the best possible use of talent. The investment managers are supported by integrated and comprehensive risk management systems and an industry leading trading desk.
Our European fund center is located in Luxembourg from where we serve institutional clients and distributors across Europe with a selection of our most competitive strategies.

Our approach to SRI and sustainability

We started implementing SRI criteria in our fund management in 1988. The following year we launched the first “green” fund. A dedicated team manages our SRI screening and policies.
In all funds we screen out companies that don’t conform to our ethical investment policy. The policy is based on international conventions and responsible investment principles. Examples of company activities that lead to exclusion: tobacco, pornography or cluster weapons.
We seek also for sustainability in our own operations, an effort that led to DNB’s inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index. The index includes the top 10 % of companies within an industry. The ranking is based on the companies’ economic, environmental and social sustainability.
