“The Sustainable Equities Fund gives our clients access to both the equity risk and sustainability focus they requested,” David Cox (Pictured), Head of Listed Markets at Brunel, said. “The three managers we appointed share a broad investing style and a prioritisation of sustainability, yet their approaches are also different enough to provide clients with the diversification they were looking for.”

“From one sustainable investment leader to another, we commend Brunel for its vision, leadership and innovation in Sustainable Investing,” Nils Bolmstrand, CEO, Nordea Asset Management added. “We are delighted, following a rigorous and engaging due diligence selection process, to have been appointed by the Brunel Pension Partnership. Nordea has been at the forefront of investing in companies that are changing the world for the better and transitioning to a more sustainable society. We are at a crucial period for a global response to climate and environmental challenges, and we look forward to working with Brunel in pursuing a more sustainable world.”
