Royal Liver Assurance Limited Superannuation Fund publishes on its website:
“RLAM launches Global Sustainable Equity fund and hires new fund manager. Royal London Asset Management (RLAM) announces the launch of its Global Sustainable Equity Fund, as well as the hire of George Crowdy who will co-manage the fund with Mike Fox, Head of Sustainable Investments at RLAM. George joins RLAM following 10 years at Janus Henderson, where he was a member of its Global Sustainable Equity team.
The new fund builds on the proven success of RLAM’s existing sustainable fund range and will consist of a concentrated and active portfolio of 30 to 50 stocks representing the best sustainable ideas from around the world. It will be measured against the MSCI ACWI Investable Market Index (ACWI), whose constituents come from both developed and emerging markets. It is aimed at wholesale and institutional clients looking for exposure to global equity investments, selected through RLAM’s proven sustainable investment process.”
Mike Fox, Head of Sustainable Investments at RLAM commented:“The new fund is a natural evolution of our sustainable proposition and will enable us to widen the universe of companies that we can invest in, to include emerging markets too. This will not only allow us to uncover new gems, but will also encourage companies around the world to improve their environmental, social and governance standards.” “
