Queenspoint is a long term investment vehicle and asset manager which acquires, holds and actively operates middle market core infrastructure assets -in fields such as transport, energy, telecommunications, waste, water and others- largely under PPP contractual and risk allocation structures.
Queenspoint´s underlying core infra businesses offer long-term cash yield with a stable risk profile. Therefore, Queenspoint is perfectly aligned with its shareholders´ commercial requirements as the premiums of Allianz clients and the contributions of ATP members need to be responsibly invested to meet long-term liabilities.
As a result, Queenspoint´s responsible investment and asset management is a continuation of ACP´s and ATP´s values and responsible investment policies.
Intellectual honesty: We pursue a rigorous and objective analysis of investment opportunities and asset management alternatives to determine an adequate balance of risk and return in the long term.
Empowerment and learning: We recognize talent and performance. We empower people to develop their skills, experience and judgement and to reach their full potential.
Result orientation: We take ownership for delivering high quality results on time.
Fiduciary responsibility: We act as if we were investing and managing our own money.
Trust: We do everything to continuously earn trust as our reputation is at the heart of our success. We say what we mean and we do what we say.
Rewarding performance: We assess and reward each individual's performance fairly and consistently.
Teamwork: We enjoy working together for a common goal. We share information across the company, our shareholders and partners, and support each other. We lead by example.
Can-do attitude: We encourage entrepreneurship, enthusiasm, determination, conviction and pro-activity.

Work-life balance: We strive for as much efficiency, freedom and flexibility as possible for everyone to enjoy other aspects of life.
ACP as Allianz Group's captive investment manager for alternative assets strives to invest sustainably across their three asset classes, Private Equity, Renewables and Infrastructure. ACP incorporates Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors into ACP´s investment processes, for example through an exclusion policy, research, corporate and country analysis, monitoring and risk management.
ACP is committed to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI). Our parent company, Allianz SE, is a signatory to the UN PRI, and so in addition to integrating ESG principles in our investment process, ACP also incorporates these into their ownership policies and practices and aim for appropriate disclosure on ESG issues. ACP´s commitment covers all Allianz insurance assets.
ATP prioritises responsibility and is a member of and plays an active role in several organisations focusing on responsibility and responsible investments.
ATP is a member of the UN Global Compact and supports the ten Global Compact principles concerning human rights, labour rights, the environment and anti-corruption. By way of its membership, ATP has undertaken to provide annual updates on its progress of the work on the principles.
ATP has been supporting the UN-backed Principles for Responsible Investment for several years. In 2013, ATP, along with other Danish pension funds, left the PRI organisation in a joint withdrawal due to serious governance challenges in the PRI organisation. In the years since then, we have been following the PRI discussions and reforms with interest and have been in constructive dialogue with the PRI Board of Directors. In 2016, three years after leaving the PRI organisation, ATP decided to rejoin the organisation.
