Anna has been involved with ESG-issues for almost 10 years now. She is currently employed by a large Finnish pension insurance company where she works as an ESG Specialist within the investment department. In 2004 Hanken (the Swedish School of Economics in Helsinki) accepted her master's thesis titled "Non-financial Aspects of Investment Decision Making". In her thesis she set out to explore whether or not an institutional investor can have non-financial guidelines in its overall investment guidelines. Her findings are still used today by Ilmarinen Mutual Pension Insurance Company.
Since I work for an institutional investor I am interested in the integration of ESG issues with conventional research and the implementation of non-financial guidelines
