Wednesday, October 18, 2017

The fund will be co-managed by Sarah Norris and Dominic Byrne who will screen for companies with a positive impact, which the firm said was an investment approach “ready to enter the mainstream”.

By adhering to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the managers will ensure companies are having a positive impact on the environment, society and clients.

It will have a high-conviction portfolio of 35-60 stocks, those which intentionally direct its resources towards making a positive environmental or social contribution and implement this strategy in their operations.

This includes companies that are designed to provide solutions in areas such as healthcare and education.
