Our philosophy and process

Every time we consider a security or look at an industry or country, it’s in the context of what’s happening across the world. We believe the investment landscape is shaped over the long term by some key trends, and we use a range of global investment themes to capture these.

Investment team

Our Sustainable Global Equity Income strategy is managed by an experienced team. Our global sector analysts and investment managers are located on a single floor in London, which helps to ensure that the investment process is flexible and opportunistic. Our dedicated responsible investment team is an integral part of the investment decision-making process. Guided by our global investment themes, the team works together to identify opportunities and risks through research and debate.

Strategy profile

Objective

The strategy seeks to generate income, together with some capital growth, over a period of at least 5-7 years

Yield discipline

Every new holding in a Sustainable Global Equity Income portfolio typically has a prospective yield at least 25% greater than the comparative index at the point of purchase. Any holding whose prospective yield falls below the comparative index yield will trigger our sale discipline process.

Your capital may be at risk. The value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the original amount invested.

Key investment risks

 

  • There is no guarantee that the strategy will achieve its objective.
  • This strategy invests in global markets which means it is exposed to changes in currency rates which could affect the value of the strategy.
  • The strategy may use derivatives to generate returns as well as to reduce costs and/or the overall risk of the strategy. Using derivatives can involve a higher level of risk. A small movement in the price of an underlying investment may result in a disproportionately large movement in the price of the derivative investment.
  • The strategy invests in emerging markets. These markets have additional risks due to less developed market practices.
  • A fall in the value of a single investment may have a significant impact on the value of the strategy because it typically invests in a limited number of investments.
  • The strategy may invest in small companies which may be riskier and less liquid (i.e. harder to sell) than large companies. This means that their share prices may have greater fluctuations.
  • The strategy follows a sustainable investment approach, which may cause it to perform differently to strategies that have a similar objective but which do not integrate sustainable investment criteria when selecting securities.
