Alert AkademikerPension: AkademikerPension excludes China

28 September 2020

As the first pension company in Denmark, AkademikerPension now excludes China from the investment universe. Government bonds and shares worth close to DKK 400 million must now be sold off and invested elsewhere. It is the management of AkademikerPension who, together with a unanimous board, have made the decision to exclude China.

“We have long had China under observation. It is well known that the country systematically violates human rights, and we can no longer turn a blind eye to it,” says Jens Munch Holst, director of AkademikerPension.

AkademikerPension has, among other things, been the skeleton of China’s current security law for Hong Kong, that over a million Uighurs are in upbringing camps and that China diligently uses the death penalty and persecutes minorities and political opponents.
