Royal London Asset Management (RLAM) today announces the launch of its Sustainable Growth Fund.
The new fund combines RLAM’s established expertise in equities and fixed income to exploit the investment opportunities available as a result of market inefficiencies and the undervaluation of companies that can have a positive influence on society and the environment. Employing a longstanding and proven sustainable investment process, the fund will invest in global equity and fixed income assets to construct a portfolio highly diversified by geography and sector to achieve capital growth over the medium term (3-5 years).
Managed by Mike Fox, George Crowdy and Sebastien Beguelin, the new fund further expands RLAM’s range of sustainable investment solutions, with a suite of 8 investment strategies across UK and overseas equity and fixed income markets.
The Sustainable Growth Fund launches with £100 million of assets under management and is suitable for a broad spectrum of investors – including retail, wealth managers and institutions – with a wide range of risk profiling requirements. The fund is rated risk level 6 under Defaqto and Dynamic Risk Planner models.
Mike Fox, Head of Sustainable Investments and co-Portfolio Manager of the Sustainable Growth Fund, commented:
“We consistently find companies that are attractive from a Sustainability perspective are undervalued by the market, leading to exceptional opportunities for investors to benefit from the returns available whilst meeting their risk and sustainability requirements. We believe our long track record and proven approach to sustainable investing positions us extremely well to deliver a highly diversified portfolio that can meaningfully contribute to meeting clients’ long-term investment goals.”
Rob Williams, Chief Distribution Officer at RLAM, added:
“Demand for sustainable and responsible investment solutions continues to grow, with investors more aware than ever of the importance and merits of tackling the world’s challenges in addition to accessing attractive returns. By combining our heritage of equity and fixed income investing with our proven Responsible Investment insights, we believe we are extremely well placed to meet this demand, with the new fund complementing our existing suite of sustainable products and allowing us to provide a wide range of solutions for investors.
