Within its first two weeks of trading, Bankinvest's new eco-labeled fund has attracted DKK 4.7bn (EUR 630m). The majority of the capital stems from investment solutions at local Danish banks, explains CEO Lars Bo Bertram. He has no doubt that there is a great interest among retail investors for sustainable products.
