AP4 invests in children's rights

The Global Child Impact Equities Fund is the first fund to focus on children's rights. The fund is developed in partnership between RobecoSAM and the Swedish Royal family's foundation Global Child Forum. The Fourth Swedish National Pension Fund (AP4) is one of the first large investors.

- We are long term investors and our goal is to contribute to the stability of the national pension system. The investments we make today, belongs to our future generations and it was therefore natural for us to make this investment, says Mats Andersson, CEO AP4.

- We want to contribute to efficient and well-functioning markets, and therefore we understand the importance of making responsible investments. In our work as a long term investor, we must do what we can to ensure children’s wellbeing, as they in fact are our future, Mats Andersson continues.

Today the Global Child Forum 2015 takes place in Stockholm. The Forum gathers 400 important and influential international decision makers from business, governments, civil society and academia. The forum aims to provide a platform for global dialogue, knowledge transfer and cross-sector cooperation.

During the day, the fund Global Child Impact Equities Fund will be launched. Mats Andersson, Åse Bäckström (CEO Global Child Forum) and Michael Baldinger (CEO RobecoSAM) will then jointly talk more about the fund.
