Delivering sustainable outcomes

Global warming is one of the greatest challenges of the modern world. The scale and urgency of change needed to ensure global greenhouse gas emissions are aligned with a 1.5 degrees Celsius pathway will impact every part of the global economy. As a committed investor, we must act and support the transition to a low-carbon and climate-resilient world.

Through our Climate Transition funds, we invest in companies and assets that are driving fundamental changes for a sustainable future by targeting opportunities that accelerate, and benefit from, the transition to a low-carbon economy. We take a unique and innovative approach that meets the needs of investors seeking:

Long-term capital growth

To invest for a sustainable future

Active monitoring and reporting of climate performance

A pioneering approach

First, we exclude companies that produce more carbon-intensive fossil fuels. Then we analyse each stock from two angles: companies that offer solutions for adapting or mitigating climate change; and companies that are orientating their business models to be resilient in a warmer climate and a low-carbon economy.

Pioneering climate approach

Our proprietary climate transition risk model helps us identify a wide range of investment opportunities arising from the impact of climate change across a broad range of industries and market capitalisations.

Connected thinking

Our dedicated equities and climate specialists work collaboratively, blending an integrated research framework with strong in-house ESG expertise. This allows us to uncover risks and opportunities across sectors, with a coordinated climate engagement approach to drive positive change at investee companies.

High-conviction investing

We adopt an unconstrained stock picking approach to identify the best opportunities, irrespective of style implications. Benefiting from robust risk and climate governance, and potentially lower correlation to the broader market, the strategy could be an attractive option in a well-diversified client portfolio.

Key risks

For further information on the risks and risk profiles of our funds, please refer to the relevant KIID and Prospectus.

Investment risk

The value of an investment and any income from it can go down as well as up and can fluctuate in response to changes in currency and exchange rates. Investors may not get back the original amount invested.

Illiquid securities risk

Certain assets held in the funds could, by nature, be hard to value or to sell at a desired time or at a price considered to be fair (especially in large quantities), and as a result their prices could be very volatile.
