Schroders has launched a new emerging markets equity impact strategy.
The Schroder ISF Emerging Markets Equity Impact fund will be aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and will focus on responsible consumption, health and wellness, sustainable infrastructure, inclusion and the environment. Schroders says the fund will follow a long-term, unconstrained and bottom-up investment approach, encompassing 30-50 companies in emerging markets. The fund is classified under the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation as Article 9.
It will be managed by Co-Fund Managers Jonathan Fletcher and James Gotto and be supported by Schroders’ proprietary impact measurement tools SustainEx and Carbon Value at Risk. Schroders active ownership and stewardship focuses will also form core parts of the investment process.
