Nordic Asset Management's New Asia Pacific Hub


Hong Kong, China -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/13/2021 -- Nordic Asset Management is opening a new ESG hub that is designed to service the Asia Pacific region. The firm's new venture will be its first based outside of its regular Nordic headquarters and is intended to allow Nordic to get closer to clients in this part of the world. The new hub will be made up of a group of ESG analysts, all of whom are going to be hired from a pool of local talent and integrated into the Nordics-based RI asset management team. Nordic Asset Management has identified Asia Pacific as a key region for expansion and is keen to use the new hub as a way to better understand clients in this part of the world, especially when it comes to sustainability. Recruiting local talent is a vital part of this process, as it will ensure that the firm can bring well-informed local knowledge and perspectives to the table.
