It is now the third anniversary of our Nordic Swan Ecolabel certification. On October 10, 2017, the Tundra Sustainable Frontier Fund was one of the first 12 funds to be awarded the eco-label at a ceremony with Per Bolund, then Sweden’s Minister of Finance and Consumer Affairs. This is how Mattias Martinsson, founder and head of administration at Tundra Fonder, describes the current situation for the fund:
“We are heading towards an exciting period. Many years of stimulus in developed markets have created a valuation gap where most of our markets are valued lower than before. You do not necessarily have to be pessimistic about other equity markets, but merely question how long this gap can continue to increase given the higher growth in our markets. Investment cycles can be long but they are called cycles simply because they fluctuate. If you are a long-term investor, it is reasonable at this stage of market development to consider diversifying your portfolio somewhat.
Our ambition is to find the best companies in the next generation of growth markets. We will strive to invest in companies that are prepared to take responsibility for the impact they have on the environment, that care about the society they work in, and that value their employees. Companies that also respect and value their shareholders. It is our responsibility as important investors to help them continue to develop towards a sustainable future. Imagine if your investment can contribute to that.”
