St. James’s Place are continually looking at ways to develop and enhance their approach to responsible investment, something that all the fund managers are encouraged to consider as an integrated element of the investment process.
In line with the evolving investment proposition Kirsteen Morrison and David Winborne of Impax Asset Management, a specialist asset manager based in London, have been appointed by St.James’s Place to run the Sustainable & Responsible Equity Fund.
The Fund strategy seeks to identify companies that are having a positive impact on the sustainability of the planet.
Impax believes that:
Capital markets will be shaped profoundly by global sustainability challenges, including climate change, pollution and essential investments in human capital, infrastructure and resource efficiency.
These trends will drive growth for well-positioned companies and create risks for those unable or unwilling to adapt.
Fundamental analysis which incorporates long term risks, including environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, enhances investment decisions.
The fund will invest in a relatively concentrated portfolio of 35-45 global businesses that are well positioned to benefit from the shift to a more sustainable global economy.
They offer a well-rounded suite of investment solutions spanning multiple asset classes seeking superior risk-adjusted returns over the medium to long term.
Specialists in the transition to a more sustainable global economy.
