GIB AM adds sustainable corporate bond fund

GIB Asset Management has announced the launch of the GIB AM Sustainable World Corporate Bond Fund.

The fund will invest in corporate bonds of companies that are considered to have the greatest social and environmental challenges, and is classified as Article 9 under the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR).

Samantha Lamb, manager of the fund says, “We have built a team with diverse backgrounds and expertise within fixed income, but who each share a common goal of delivering returns for our clients while supporting a sustainable future for people and planet. We have also built an investment approach from scratch to help support businesses solving the world’s biggest challenges, while ensuring we invest in some of the most compelling credits from a long-term perspective. There are few existing options for investors who want to access global fixed income markets in a way that taps into the financial opportunities presented by challenges such as healthy nutrition, connectivity, clean energy and inclusive growth. The Sustainable World Corporate Bond fund aims to fill this gap, with its innovative thematic approach to fixed income investing.”
