Schroders & BlueOrchard adds climate fund

Schroders and BlueOrchard have launched a climate impact strategy targeting positive environmental change in emerging markets.

The Schroder ISF BlueOrchard Emerging Markets Climate Bond fund will invest in mainly emerging markets green bonds and support the United Nations’ climate-related Sustainable Development Goals. The climate bond fund will include projects such as renewable energy, energy efficiency, green buildings and clean transportation and invest via sustainability-linked bonds.

Michael Wehrle, Head of Investment Solutions, BlueOrchard, says: “Delivering green finance for emerging markets is key to building a low carbon world of the future. Green bonds represent a powerful opportunity to pursue positive environmental change, while also earning attractive fixed income returns. Investing in these growing opportunities will not only mean investors are contributing to a lasting positive impact to climate change mitigation in markets with the fastest growth, but are also delivering robust performance for their portfolios.”
