The Second AP Fund's mission is to maximize long-term return on the pension assets under its management. Environmental and ethical concerns shall be addressed without compromising the overall goal of a higher return.
A relatively large proportion of the Fund's capital assets are placed in both Swedish and foreign companies, making it a significant investor. The long-term development of these companies is dependent on shareholder commitment and involvement. As a major shareholder, the Second AP Fund therefore practices an active role with a view to promoting good corporate governance and enhancing net worth.
