The Second AP Fund’s ability to recruit new staff, retain them and contribute to their development is essential in achieving its long-term objective. Part of the Fund’s long-term strategy is to use its own resources to build up still more professional and cost-efficient portfolio management.

The Fund aims to offer an attractive and stimulating work environment and sees continuously to offer employees opportunities for development, recruiting the right people and develop leadership.
AP2 is an employer with motivated and committed staff. Ethical behaviour is an important element of this culture and forms a natural part of the Fund’s values system.
The Fund has continued the process of building a robust culture and strengthening its joint values. The values on which this culture is built are the creation of long-term value, responsibility, respect and consistent improvement. This process is intended to clarify and promote consensus around the Fund’s values and to establish the principle that these values should provide guidance in the Fund’s day-to-day operations.

The Second AP Fund strives first and foremost to recruit from within the organization and to encourage internal mobility. In this way, specialist skills and expertise can better be utilized. For a number of years, the Fund has cooperated with the School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg, and Chalmers Institute of Technology, enabling them to offer students opportunities of temporary employment on specific projects, trainee positions and temporary employment during summer vacations.
