Finsif in brief
Finland's Sustainable Investment Forum (Finsif) is a member based organization, that promotes responsible investment that takes account factors related to environment, society, and corporate governance when considering investment decisions. Finsif was established in 2010.
Finsif has 64 members varying from smaller players (11 million euros of assets under management) to grand league (up to 105 billion euros of assets under management). About half of the members are asset managers (49%), the second largest group is investors (39 %) and the smallest group of members is service providers (14%).
The work of the organization is lead by a yearly selected board of members and one employee, coordinator. In addition, some active members are sharing their knowledge and helping with projects. The board meets once a month and works is pro-bono.
Finsif organizes events, collaborates with researchers and communicates the agenda for investors and related groups in Finland. The goal is to encourage members to integrate sustainable investment issues as a part of investment decision-making and evaluation processes.
In terms of sharing the knowledge amongst its members and stakeholders, Finsif has delivered three publications during a year - Responsible Investment Guide, Responsible Investing in Finland - Market Study 2017 and Sustainable Investment in University Studies 2017? The full publications can be downloaded in Finnish from here.
Finsif is part of Nordic Sustainable Investment forum (Nordic SIF) -collaboration and attends and organizes annual meetings. Nordic SIF members (Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden) gather together once a year to discuss the current work and key topics of sustainable investment. The annual Nordic SIF Forum is open to all Finsif members as well as to members of any other Nordic SIF organisations (Dansif, Norsif, Swesif). Previously the forum was held in Finland 2016 and Denmark 2017. The following year 2018 it will be held in Norway.
