Financial Markets Investments
Securing the financial resilience and longevity of Ingka Group
As a purpose-led company, our ambition is to invest with impact.
We take a long-term perspective, which means we believe that investing responsibly also ensures a more attractive risk reward. In line with the IKEA vision, we aim to make responsible investments in people and businesses that generate profits with purpose.
Securing available financial resources
We keep resources secure for IKEA Retail because we're careful with where we invest. We invest, for example, in bond markets, stocks in public companies and funds that focus on creating value for people and the planet.
Optimising risk-adjusted returns
We base our investment strategies on a macro-economic outlook to optimize an attractive long-term yield on the portfolio. We do not invest in areas that conflict with our purpose and mandate, and we use external benchmarks to measure how well we are doing and guide our choices.
We invest responsibly
With this as a base, we turn our focus on investments that deliver an impact, solving the challenges in today’s world. We are continually refining the parameters we are guided by as regulations and best practices evolve.
