NAM UK launches Global Sustainable Equity Fund


Nomura Asset Management UK  (NAM UK) has launched its Global Sustainable Equity Fund offering investors exposure to companies aiming to make a positive impact on the environment and society. 

The fund, which focuses on the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals, will invest in a portfolio of 30-40 global equity stocks in sectors such as healthcare, renewable energy and fintech.
 
The Ireland-domiciled UCITS fund is managed from London by Lead Portfolio Manager Alex Rowe and Tom Wildgoose, Head of Equity Investment at NAM UK. The fund will aim to outperform the MSCI All Country World Total Return index by 2 per cent - 3 per cent per annum (net of fees) over a three year rolling period.
 
Alex Rowe said: “We are seeing considerable demand across clients for truly active, sustainable investment solutions. The fund is a natural extension to the firm’s extensive track record and commitment to responsible investment and we believe it offers something truly differentiated in this fast growing sector.”
 
Peter Ball, Managing Director at NAM UK, says: “The Global Sustainable Equity Fund launch marks a further extension of the Nomura Funds Ireland Plc. range of funds, which currently has USD7.7 billion of assets under management. The strategy capitalises on Nomura’s global equity investment platform and long standing track record as responsible investors.”
