Fund focus

Meaningful Impact High Yield aims to pool professional and institutional investors with the same long-term investment horizon to fully harvest the Nordic credit premium.

In essence, this is achieved through monthly liquidity and less restrictive limitations on holdings. This will cater for better capital utilization, scalability, and flexibility, to provide higher expected returns.

The fund seeks to invest in companies that bring a clear positive contribution to sustainability while at the same time generating superior financial returns.
