Lannebo Sustainable Corporate Bond - Green bond fund
Companies seeking financing have traditionally looked to conventional bank loans. Now many companies turn to the capital markets to fund their business, which has increased the potential to invest in corporate bonds. Nordic Companies are also at the forefront of the growing market of Green Bonds – Bonds that are specifically targeting environmental or social issues.
Lannebo Sustainable Corporate Bond invests in Green Bonds, corporate bonds from issuers that are producing environmental solutions or from companies that themselves are graded as highly sustainable. The fund primarily invests in FRN-loans which makes the fund’s performance less dependent on changing market rates.
