Nomura Asset Management has launched the 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 Nomura.
The fund will aim to outperform the MSCI All Country World Total Return index by 2% – 3% per annum (net of fees) over a three-year rolling period, the ground said.
Rowe said the group had seen “considerable demand across clients” for active, sustainable investment solutions.
