AP2 has invested in a social bond issued by the World Bank with a focus on gender equality issues.
The purpose of the bond is to raise awareness on gender issues in general and empowerment of women and girls, thereby promoting economic growth, reducing poverty and creating the conditions for a more sustainable society. The bond is in line with the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals, where gender equality is one of them.
Through AP2’s sustainability work and in several of the investments made, the Fund contributes to the sustainability goals. The fund has invested in social bonds since 2014 as these fit well in the global interest rate portfolio and contribute to diversification.
