S.P. Hinduja Banque Privée has launched two new ESG funds.
The Swiss-based wealth manager says the SPH Global ESG Fund and the SPH Climate Change Fund are both aimed at global entrepreneurial investors.
The SPH Global ESG Fund invests in a concentrated portfolio of high-quality companies in developed markets with stable income generation potential, and strong ESG risk management in place. SPH employs a combination of rigorous ESG analysis using multiple ESG data sources, quality assessment, and fundamental research.
The SPH Climate Change Fund takes a combined top-down and bottom-up stock selection approach. The Fund simultaneously protects against the significant downside ESG risks of climate change, and captures the upside of investing in companies that are creating innovations and solutions at the intersection of climate resilience and shared economic prosperity.
The Fund will focus on the following sectors in both developed and emerging markets:
1. Alternative energy
2. Energy efficiency
3. Green real estate
4. Sustainable water
5. Pollution prevention
Both funds and the ESG-aligned model portfolio will be available to new and existing clients from the end of August onwards.
