Sector Asset Management is proud to become a signatory to the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).

“By signing the internationally recognised principles, we are formally confirming our commitment to responsible investment”, says Knut N. Kjær, Chairman of Sector Asset Management AS.

The PRI is the world’s leading proponent of responsible investment. It works to understand the investment implications of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors and to support its international network of investor signatories in incorporating these factors into their investment and ownership decisions.

The Principles were developed by investors, for investors. Knut N. Kjær took part in the working group that, upon invitation by former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, drafted the UN PRI in 2005-2006. “Since then investors’ awareness of ESG have increased rapidly, as have their expectations to investment managers. In the years to come I believe it will be increasingly important to understand how climate change, including politics and technology, can affect financial risk and return”, he says.


Sector Asset Management joins a network of over 2,000 signatories who have agreed to put the six principles into practice. The signatories collectively report over $80 trillion in assets under management.
