The strategy looks at companies and organisations focused on providing solutions in areas such as climate change mitigation, pollution prevention, the circular economy, sustainable use and protection of water and natural ecosystems and present multi-decade investment opportunities. Thus offering our clients focused and specialist exposure to these companies, generating both positive investment returns and sustainability impacts.
The Fund has a thematic global bias, investing in shares and bonds of companies globally, considered by the investment managers to be part of the move to a sustainable economy with the capability to invest in high yield bonds.
The Environmental and Sustainable Investment team conducts its own analysis in conjunction with research from a selection of third party specialists. The team draws on the knowledge of specialist stockbroking analysts, environmental and social scientists and government and independent research agencies. Prior to investment, each company must be approved as one that provides an environmental solution at the core of its business. This process is referred to as ‘positive’ screening as it determines whether a company can be included in the portfolio. In addition, each company must also pass a ‘negative’ screen.
