How we study countries
We have developed a method that allows us to screen potential countries that can be invested in, which amounts to approximately two thirds of the countries in the world. The final third are not possible to invest in, for instance because they do not issue government bonds.
Our screening consists of three steps that deal with a number of indicators and specific information relevant to assess the country, its situation and the needs of its people.
Based on this screening, PFA’s Responsible Investment Board will determine whether the country is appropriate to invest in and if there might be countries that should be studied further or excluded from our investments.
