The new methods will take a contrarian, valuation-oriented strategy and can undertake R&M’s Sustainable-PVT (S-PVT) funding philosophy, which considers potential, valuation and timing. The funds will give attention to decarbonising key high-polluting actions and industries, equivalent to building and journey, on the grounds these investments will make a constructive and demonstrable change for good.
James Sym, head of equities at River and Mercantile, mentioned: “We want 2022 to be remembered as the year that the asset management industry started doing ESG properly. We will be investing in companies that we expect to make a big improvement in their carbon footprint, as well as those companies that enable this improvement for others. This fits well with our contrarian and valuation-orientated mindset.
“We are looking to buy tomorrow’s ESG stars at yesterday’s valuations.”
Paul Craig, portfolio supervisor of Quilter Investors’ Cirilium Active vary, added: “These new funds represent a great diversification opportunity for our clients. We are impressed by R&M’s differentiated approach to sustainable investing which avoids the typical ESG ‘darlings’, and consequently offers a strong alpha-generating opportunity.”
William Lough, portfolio supervisor at River and Mercantile, mentioned: “We believe these funds will make a real-world difference, offer attractive diversification benefits for investors and tap into return drivers which have a long shelf-life.”
