Avanza Sverige is an index-tracking fund that tracks the Morningstar Sweden Sustainability Select 70, an index that Avanza developed together with Morningstar. The index consists of up to 70 companies. Companies with low sustainability risks are given preference, at the same time that those with strong ties to controversial sectors are excluded. ESG Risk Rating scores from Sustainalytics are used to evaluate the sustainability risks of individual companies.
Morningstar Sweden Sustainability Select 70 is not a market-weighted index. This means that Avanza Sverige, compared to many other Sweden index funds, will have a higher exposure to small and medium-sized companies. Avanza Sverige is only available on Avanza’s platform and the fund’s total fee is estimated at 0.17%, including transaction costs.
“When we developed Avanza Sverige, we started with how we ourselves would want to invest our money. We also saw a gap we wanted to fill between existing Swedish small cap funds and the Sweden index funds on the market. We felt that a sustainable, low-price fund with broad exposure was lacking,” says Jesper Bonnivier, CEO of Avanza Fonder.
“Avanza Sverige now gives our customers an easier way to access small and medium-sized companies with a low sustainability risk. A total estimated fee of only 0.17% also makes it the cheapest Sweden fund on Avanza’s platform, after our narrower Sweden fund, Avanza Zero,” says Rikard Josefson, CEO of Avanza.
