Quilter adds three new ESG equity funds

Quilter Investors has added three new ESG equity funds to its Cirilium range.

The funds added are the Jupiter Global Sustainable Equities fund, Premier Miton European Sustainable Leaders fund and the Regnan Global Impact Equities fund. Quilter says the funds invest in companies leading the transition to a more sustainable world or target a positive impact by investing in companies that have the potential to address major social and environmental challenges.

The firm has also added the Wells Fargo Global Climate Bond, which was seeded by Quilter Investors, to the lower risk conservative and balanced portfolios.

Paul Craig, portfolio manager of the Quilter Investors Cirilium range, said: “As long-term investors we have to acknowledge both the opportunities and the risks that come with ESG considerations as they become the fabric of our investment process. Momentum is strong in this area, but it is also important that we invest in funds that don’t just talk a good game but also deliver.
