Akademikerpension is one of the front runners in terms of green investments. In 2016, the DKK 138.6bn (EUR 18.6bn) pension fund decided to align its investment policy with the goals of the Paris Agreement.
In Danish media, the pension fund's CEO, Jens Munch Holst, and CIO Anders Schelde have become well-known faces. They always show up to explain the responsible investment portfolio they manage on behalf of 140,000 current and former M.A's, M.Sc.'s and Ph.D's, mainly employed in the public sector at universities and upper secondary schools.
