FIM boosts engagement efforts: "Nordic investors finally speak the same sustainability language"

"Although ESG does not mean exactly the same issues for all investors, nowadays we are talking about the same issues more often, which was far from the case some five years ago," says CIO of Finland's FIM Asset Management and S-Bank Wealth Management Mika Leskinen.

When stock picking and examining companies' ESG ratings, it is important to focus not only on the company's absolute ESG score, but also the recent and expected change of its rating, says CIO of FIM Asset Management and S-Bank Wealth Management Mika Leskinen.

"One should not look only at the absolute ESG score of a company, but at its development and progress in sustainability, how its ESG score has changed and is changing. Afterall, in ESG investing one of the main ideas is change and improvement. A company which improves its ESG rating becomes more interesting for a larger group of investors," Helsinki-based Leskinen says to AMWatch.
