Titel: Institutionella investerares preferenser för ES-kriterier

Nivå: Examensarbete på Grundnivå (kandidatexamen) i ämnet företagsekonomi

Syfte: Intressenternas ökade behov av insyn i miljö-, sociala- och styrningsfrågor har givit stor vikttill hållbarhetsrapportering världen över. Denna studie syftar till att undersöka huruvidainstitutionellt ägande beror av ES-kriterier och ger nytt ljus åt forskningen med fokus på bådepositiva och negativa aspekter av ES-kriterier. Ökar/minskar det institutionella ägandet beroende pånärvaron av policyer hos företag? Existerar det ett samband mellan ESG-betyget och policyer?

Metod: Med sekundärdata från databasen Refinitiv Eikon har denna kvantitativa studie medtvärsnittsdesign analyserat 2653 publika företag i IBM: s statistikprogram SPSS. Studien presenterarbeskrivande statistik, en korrelationsmatris, kontroll av felkällor samt multipla regressionsanalyser.

Resultat & slutsats: Studien ger bevis för att det institutionella ägandet huvudsakligen ökar vidnärvaron av specifika policyer. Emellertid minskar institutionellt ägande vid närvaron av en specifikpolicy. Studien finner även stöd för ett existerande samband mellan ESG-betyget och policyer.

Examensarbetets bidrag: Studien bidrar med ny information till forskningen inom ESG-betygetoch för institutionella investerare genom ett unikt tillvägagångssätt att studera institutionellainvesterares preferenser för olika ES-kriterier med fokus på både styrkor och svagheter.

Förslag till fortsatt forskning: Kvantitativ forskning kan svara på huruvida liknande resultat hadeuppnåtts vid val av andra indikatorer. Kvalitativ forskning kan från institutionella investeraresperspektiv, förklara hur de faktiskt beaktar ES-kriterier och dess indikatorer vid investeringsbeslut.

Supervisor: Jan Svanberg

Date: 2022 - January

Aim: Stakeholders' increased need for transparency in environmental, social and governance issueshas given great importance to sustainability reporting worldwide. This study aims to investigatewheather institutional ownership depends on ES criteria and sheds new light on research by focusingon both positive and negative aspects of ES criteria. Does institutional ownership increase/decreasedue to the presence of policies in companies? Is there a link between the ESG rating and policies?

Method: With secondary data from the Refinitiv Eikon database, this quantitative study with crosssectional design analyzed 2653 public companies in the IBM: s statistics program SPSS. The studypresents descriptive statistics, a correlation matrix, control of error sources and regression analyzes.

Result & Conclusions: The study provides evidence that institutional ownership mainly increases inthe presence of specific policies. However, institutional ownership decreases in the presence of aspecific policy. The study also finds support for an existing link between ESG ratings and policies.

Contribution of the thesis: The study contributes new information to the research within the ESGrating and for institutional investors through a unique approach to studying institutional investors'preferences for different ES criteria with a focus on both strengths and weaknesses.

Suggestions for future research: Quantitative research can answer whether similar results had beenachieved by choosing other indicators. Qualitative research can explain how they actually considerES criteria and its indicators when making investment decisions.
