A high-conviction, sustainability-themed strategy that invests in companies positioned to thrive as we transition to a more sustainable economy.

Investment Process

The strategy uses a thematic approach to identify companies addressing sustainability challenges in three areas: Climate Solutions, Economic Inclusion, and Healthy Living. A team of fundamental, sector focused analysts conduct bottom-up financial analysis including a rigorous integrated review of financial and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors. The Investment Management Committee, comprised of portfolio managers and analysts, meets periodically to review and approve recommendations to the buy-list recommended by the analysts. A strategy team, headed by the lead Portfolio Manager, rebalances the portfolio on at least a quarterly basis to identify the best sub-set of names from the buy-list at that particular point of time. The team monitors portfolio exposures relative to the benchmark using an optimizer and scenario analysis as we review the impact of potential trades.
